At 2046 hours engine 37 was dispatched 2nd due (we are normally not due on this box alarm, but due to units being scattered around the county we were placed on the run) to the 3400 blk of Parkway Terrace Drive for the reported apartment fire. While en-route to the call chief 26 arrived and reported "smoke in the hallways" then advised "working fire on the first floor." Engine 37 arrived and took the hydrant for 8 and ran the 400'.The crew met 8 in the landing and both crews made entry to the apartment finding a kitchen on fire. The fire was knocked quickly and command knocked it back to 2 and 1. The engine company was on scene for over an hour before returning to service.
