Crews were summoned to the Pioneer Building to reports of smoke coming from the elevator penthouse on the roof. Chief 2 noted heavy smoke coming from the roof area while responding. First in crews laid two 2-1/2 inch lines into the penthouse standpipe system. They secured an elevator and took high-rise bundles to the 16th floor, where they accessed the penthouse. Saint Paul fire crews supplied water to the standpipe system as repairman on scene indicated there were issues with the buildings fire suppression system. Crews accessed the penthouse area and began putting water on the fire. Wind conditions made it difficult for firefighters to get water on the fire. Crews eventually extinguished the fire, which mainly involved styrene and smoldering fiberglass insulation materials and wood on the roof. The 16th floor of the building was evacuated as crews looked for any fire extensions. Once the fire was totally extinguished, crews had very heavy and exhausting overhaul work. Crews were relieved every 15 minutes or so. The elevator was now out, so firefighters had to hand carry all of their firefighting gear down stairwells. Operations were complete in approximately 40 minutes. Firefighters turned the building over to management to clean up, repair the buildings fire suppression and alarm systems. A fire watch was established until the sprinkler company was on scene. One firefighter was slightly injured at the scene and transported to the hospital. Damage to the building was listed as $100,000.00 and crews remained on the scene until 1516 hours.

Crews responded to a fire in a grocery store with apartments above. First arriving Engine 22 reported heavy smoke and fire on the first floor as they got on scene. Engine 22 laid a 2-1/2 line and secured their own water supply. They broke out the front window and began attacking flames there. Ladder 22 did a primary search of the second floor. Engine 18 laid a 1-3/4 backup line to the first floor. Engine 17 laid a 1-3/4 hand line to the rear and found heavy fire in the basement. A backup line was also deployed in the basement. At the 20-minute mark, Engine 22 discoverd a male in the basement. Engine 22 ran out of air and had to evacuate. Squad 1 took over their position and had to leave when they ran out of air and encounterd extremely high heat levels. All fire crews were forced out of the basement due to the heat. Crews re-entered the basement after fire was knocked down and retrieved the male body. Because of structure damage, crews were forced outside again. Crews went to a defensive attack again Ladder 22 used their aerial stream to knock down fire from above. The basement fire had burned through the first floor and crews worked for a couple hours trying to bring this fire under control. Damage was estimated at $273,300.00 and crews remained on the scene until 1620 hours.
