Engine 62-1 was responding when Battalion 62 went on scene with heavy fire from side D of the 2 story Single Family Dwelling. Battalion 62 assumed Coventryville Command and requested the assignment upgraded to a Working House Fire and struck the first alarm Tanker Taskforce due to the limited water supply in the area.
