A working still alarm was then initiated to bring in mutual aid resources for additional manpower. Additional mutual aid Fire Companies were then used to open up the roof and attic area while interior crews opened up the ceiling inside the building, and the fire area was then accessed and extinguished. There was fire, smoke, and water damage to one apartment, minor damage to other apartments on the 2nd floor, and some water damage to the 1st floor area of the business.
