An attack line was advanced to the rear of the building where the crew began to knock down the fire.

A second alarm was struck, bringing E22, E23 and a Mashpee Engine to the scene.

Additional attack lines were advanced to the interior, where crews encountered a stubborn firetraveling throughout many concealed spaces. The fire was knocked down in about 45 mins.
