On July 5, at 10:49PM, Potsdam Fire was dispatched to 80 Market Street, A-1 Kitchen Chinese Restaurant, for a reported fire threatening a structure. Engine 49, operated by Career Fire Driver Robert Pierce, was enroute immediately at the time of page and was on scene less than 2 minutes later.

Upon Engine 49's arrival, Firefighter Kozak grabbed a wet can off Engine 49 and extinguished the fire before it spread any further into the building.

Eight members ultimately responded to the call.
