At 15:41 hours on January 30, 2008 a building fire was reported at 2361 West McMicken Avenue in Camp Washington. First alarm companies were confronted with a heavy fire condition in an occupied, 2-story dwelling. There was an exposure problem as an adjoining residence was a mere 3 feet away from the fire building.
