The first arriving company from station 8 arrived four (4) minutes after receipt of the 9-1-1 call.  On arrival, the company officer reported a brush fire with three structures either involved or exposed to a rapidly spreading fire.   Initial actions were taken to extinguish the main body of the brush fire involving trees and light brush and protect the structures from further damage.  One recycling building, a construction trailer / office and apartment complex garage structure were damaged.  Additional responding units were able to contain the fire before causing major damage to the multi-unit garage structure and construction trailer / office.  No injuries were reported to civilians or fire personnel.

Mansfield Ave. was shut down for a short time so fire crews could extinguish the blaze.
