Allentown Stretches for Southside Apartment
Just after midnight Engine 11, 14, 9, 4 (FAST) Truck 2 and Battalion 43 were dispatched to 2060 Vine St for a reported apartment building fire. Engine 11 first on location has smoke showing from the D side roof area of the building, crews start to pull ceiling and find fire running the attic area of the building.

The cause is under investigation by the fire marshal's office and companies were back in service in about an hour and a half..
