.
On Thursday August 15, 2013 shortly after 12:00 noon Station 2 Firefighter Brad Ladislaw heard a woman yelling and went outside.  As he exited the station he noticed a large smoke plume coming from a house across the street.  He immediately radioed dispatch to transmit a box alarm for a working fire.  Engine 2 and Engine 38 were both on incidents at the time the fire was called in but were both in the process of clearing.  While Engine 38 was responding there was a large smoke plume and therefore a the box was ordered filled for all Wildwood companies. F-200 Chief Cole quickly arrived and reported a 1-1/2 story wood frame private dwelling heavily involved.  Engine 2 arrived quickly and began stretching lines.  Members encountered heavy fire in the rear of the dwelling.  Engine 38 arrived second due and laid a supply line to Engine 2.  Engine 38 stretched a 1-3/4" line to the B side of the dwelling to protect the exposure on that side.  Engine 38's crew was then assigned to enter the dwelling to complete fire suppression on Division 2.  The dwelling suffered heavy fire damage while 2 exposures (a garage and cottage) and the dwelling on the B side sustained significant exterior damage from the radiant heat.  Engine 38 operated on the scene for over 2 hours before taking up.  While operating on this box, Engine 37 and Truck 51 had to clear and respond to a report of smoke from a building on E. Roberts Ave. in the City.  Companies found a cooking fire that was qucikly brought under control.
