“Stockton Firefighters responded to multiple reports of a structure fire on August 13th, 2016 in the 2000 block of South San Joaquin Street. The first alarm assignment arrived on scene to fire in both units of the duplex, in the attic, in the back yard, and spreading to an adjacent structure (C exposure). Engine 2 pulled an attack line, flowing water to the rear of the structure and transitioning to an interior attack. A second line was pulled to the rear of the structure as the Fire Attack crew knocked down the interior flames. The Vent crew cut two holes, but encountered unusual (layered) construction when trying to break through.
