Tower 7 and the ambulance responded with 5 personnel. First arriving units arrived to find fire showing from a 2 story student housing facility. Tower 7 arrived as the second due truck and went to work laddering sides Charlie and Delta of the building, forcing entry on side Charlie of the building, as well as conducting a primary and secondary search. 
With units having a hard making an advance on the fire on division 1, Command ordered the EVAC tones to reset the fire.
