November 21st – Engine 7-1 and Squad 7 were alerted for an Automatic Alarm at 25 Creekstone Drive just after 3 PM.  Engine 5-1 (Mont Alto) arrived to find a single story residence with nothing showing from the outside.  Upon initial investigation a smoke condition was found on the first floor and in the basement.  Engine 7-1 and Squad 7 arrived and was assigned to the attack line and investigation group.  The box was upgraded by Command 5 to the house fire assignment.  After utilities were secured the source of the smoke was a faulty pellet stove in the basement.  Crews assisted with ventilation and went available shortly after 5 PM.
