Units began responding to the incident within one minute with Chief 18-1 (W.Turner) marking on scene of a two story wood frame residential, approximately 30'X40' with a light smoke condition.  Command was advised by the home owner it appeared a fire had started around the chimney area and was spreading beneath the floor in division 2. 
The residence was constructed near the turn of the century which provided post and beam construction with heavy planked floors.  Command assigned division 2 operations to E-18's crew. .

 E-24 was assigned division one and began hooking the ceiling and checking for the extent of extension.  L-18 provided  ventalation on the scene.  After opening up it was determined the fire extension was held to the floor of division 2.  Both 18 & 24 scanned all divisions including the attic with no findings.  E-52 handled salvage operations on division 1.   No civilian or fire fighter injuries were reported. All units cleared at 1825 hours.
