On Thursday morning, March 23, 2017, units from Gamber were alerted to assist Winfield with a house fire. Engine 131 and Engine Tanker 133 responded with 7 members. Chief 14-2 saw a large column of smoke while en-route to the scene and requested a tanker task force. The Chief arrived with a two story single family house with fire in the second floor and roof area. He then requested a second alarm.
Engine 131 arrived and the crew went to the scene to assist with manpower. Engine Tanker 133 arrived and assisted with water supply. Engine 131's crew was split; Chief 13 was assigned Safety Officer while the crew assisted inside. Engine 134 responded on the tanker task force. The crew from 134 also assisted on the scene. Once the fire was darkened down crews went inside to overhaul and find any pockets of fire.
Engine Tanker 133's folding tank was set up at the end of the lane. The folding tank is like a portable pool that tankers can dump water into, then is drafted out by an engine to the scene. This practice is used when hydrants are not available.
