The First Alarm Structure Box was dispatched for Cherry Hill Road in Newton for the reported smell of wires burning in the residence. Chief 8 arrived on scene and reported a moderate smoke condition in the structure. Engine 8 (Newton-Ransom) arrived first due and discovered the working basement fire. The Engine 8 crew knocked down the fire with preconnected hoseline. Ladder 4 overhauled the basement and checked for extension with the Thermal Imaging Camera while Engine 4 was returned to service. Crews operated for approx 30 minutes.
