Firefighters arrived on scene with smoke coming from the bay doors of a warehouse. One sprinkler head was going off and crews put water on the clothes bails that were on fire. Smoke filled the entire warehouse and it was determined that the fire was contained to the bails. A primary search was completed and the fire was extinguished. It was discovered that a series of extension cords that ran across the bails of clothing had overheated catching the clothes on fire. Firefighters from Stations 15, 19, 20, 8, 9, 17, 18, 25, 30, Rescue 42 and Hazmat responded to this incident.
