At 0605 Stations 120 (Chalfant), 153 (Forest Hills) and 303 (Wilkins #3) were dispatche for a possible apartment fire in the 300 block of Lynnwood Avenue in Chalfant. As units were marking up PD and EMS on scene and reported nothing showing. 303 Truck entered the dead and street first with 120 Engine behind them securing a water supply. 153 Engine arrived just behind them as units determined there was a working fire in the first floor apartment. 153 Engine crew stretched a line off of 303 Truck and entered the apartment where a bedroom fire was located. After difficulty getting water pressure the bedroom fire was knocked but crews found heavy fire extension in the ceiling and running the walls. With this update and smoke beginning to push from the second and third floors command requested a second alarm bringing 122 Rescue (Churchill), 302 (Wilkins #1) and a special call for 207 Engine. As crews began to open up the upper floors a large amount of fire was discovered on both the second and third floors. This along with a severe drop in water pressure led to the building being evacuated as crews regrouped and secured an additional water supply. Personnel were able to get the bulk of the fire knocked down shortly after, but extensive overhaul had to take place due to the fire load. During the course of the incident multiple mutual aid companies were requested for manpower. These companies included 304 Engine (Wilkins #4), 137 Rescue (Edgewood), 227 Rescue (Penn Hills #7), 135 RIT (East McKeesport), and 196 RIT (Monroeville #6).
