At 6:31 PM the Whitewater Fire Dept was dispatched to Garden Apartments for a report of smoke coming from an apartment. First arriving crews noted fire in one of the common hallways and initiated an offensive attack.

The Whitewater Fire Dept requested 4 alarms for the fire with crews responding from numerous departments. In addition an interdivisional request was made for units to standby at the Whitewater Fire Dept due to the number of local units on scene.
