Wheeling Firefighters were alerted to a vehicle fire early Wednesday morning of July 27, 2016. After Engine 5 was dispatched the call was upgraded to a structure fire. A full response was sent to Virginia Street and South Huron Street on Wheeling Island. Engine 5 arrived on scene to find the fire in the rear of the residence. C-3 indicated that the fire was a vehicle fire in a carport with extension into the garage next door. Engine 2 laid in from the hydrant and supplied Engine 5. Crews stretched two attack lines and knocked down the fire very quickly. They pulled walls and ceilings in the garage and made sure the hot spots were out. Engine 5, Engine 2, Ladder 1, Rescue 1, Squad 3, C-3 Duty Chief, and C-8 Chief Investigator responded. About 5 Wheeling PD cruisers were also on scene and members of the police department assisted with scene control and traffic control. The incident occurred early Wednesday morning.
