The safety officer declared the building unsafe once and the all crews evacuated the building and went for rehab. By the time Hartly crews made it back firefighters were ready to go back in continued with suppression. Crews made access to the attic by tearing out the ceiling in a bedroom on the C side of the structure as well as the entrance off of the A side.

Crews and the safety officers noticed the AD corner of the house separating and the foundation cracking so the building was declared unsafe for a second and final time. All firefighters exited the structure and 51-7 was moved in place for the used of an elevated master stream on the B side of the structure.
