The latest video & radio traffic posted by¬†StocktonFireHistory. Here’s the description with the video:

On February 26th, 2017, Stockton Fire’s Truck 3 was returning to quarters when they diverted to investigate a column of smoke in the area of Grant & Charter. Truck 3 requested a ‘box alarm’ (structure fire response) a few blocks from the fire. Truck 3 updated the location to Aurora & First. They arrived on scene to a working structure fire, and immediately went to work- splitting their crew (2 to search, 2 to the roof for vertical ventilation). Truck 3 was informed that there was a woman inside, forcing entry and searching the house before any other units arrive.

Stockton Firefighters worked quickly to save most of the structure and possessions; fully extinguishing the fire in approximately 10 minutes. No victims were found in the structure. The video and the fire audio are not synched perfectly, but are used together to better illustrate the operations on scene.
