Greenwich (CT) firefighters were dispatched to Lower Cross Road for a dwelling fire. On arrival, crews were faced with heavy fire conditions throughout much of a single-story dwelling. Firefighters made a strong push into the dwelling but the well-advanced fire forced crews to transition into a defensive attack. A tower ladder was put into operation as firefighters worked handlines. Water pressure was also an issue during the fire. Tankers were brought in to help shuttle water and a fill site was established. Crews set up a collapse zone when parts of the dwelling started to come down. The fire was knocked down around 90 minutes later.
