On the evening of April 8, 2024, Rochester firefighters were dispatched to Copeland Street for the report of a house fire. On arrival, crews were faced with heavy smoke and fire from a 2-1/2 story wood frame. The deputy chief arrived and called for a second alarm, bringing in extra manpower due to exposure issues. Firefighters made a strong push into the dwelling, but advanced fire conditions had command pull all firefighters out of the building and switch to defensive ops. Multiple master streams and handlines worked to bring the fire under control.
