On Monday April 13 at about 2:05 pm, the Stony Hill and Bethel Fire Department’s were dispatched to 413 Copper Square, a new residential development across the street from Stony Hill Fire Department, for a report of a fire in Unit 413.
Chief Galliford was informed while enroute that it was a unit under construction.
Mutual aid response from Brookfield FD for additional manpower was requested prior to FD arrival, as this is a densely built three story townhouse complex, that can create challenges for firefighters, especially in a unit not completely built out with all the normal fire protection features.
Upon FD arrival, a smoldering fire was found in the garage area. SHFD Engine 3 and BFD Engine 6 quickly extinguished the fire and damage was very minimal to the structure. All other units including Brookfield were cancelled enroute and not needed on scene. Fire units remained on scene for about 45 minutes to extinguish the smoldering insulation and check for hotspots.
