The call was initially for a fire alarm, and when the inital units from Kincora arrived they found an actual fire. Tower 618 was the 2nd truck on the assignment and positioned to the rear of the structure.

Engine 618 was dispatched as part of the Rapid Intervention Team, but were quickly released once the fire was out and the scene was stable, and Canteen 611 was staffed and ready to respond. ...
