On Friday evening the OFC was dispatched for a Chimney Fire in the 500 block of High Street, in Odessa. Tanker 24 was on the street responding with a crew of five, as the building siren was winding up for its last cycle. The Tanker arrived in under a minute with 24-8C (Trincia Jr) assuming command.
