Tonight @ 2300 company 8 & 7 were dispatched to the Edgewater Apt. in town for a dumpster fire. Snozzle 8 and Tac 8 responded and arrived quickly to find a dumpster going good. The team stretched the Snozzle's front bumper-line, pulled some hooks and made very short work of the fire. The team filled up the can and quickly returned, topping off the booster tank on the way back to the station.

07-1 handed a fire alarm at the same time and was available quickly also and returned.
