A second alarm was called to bring additional resources to the scene. In all, eight engine companies, three ladder companies, five command officers, two heavy rescue units and a volunteer support truck assisted with the operation.

There were no reported injuries.

The fire was confined to one building but eight of the 20 units were damaged from the blaze.
