A second alarm would be struck adding Engine Co. 8, Car 30, Car 26, Car 5, and the Fire Inspectors to the call. Conditions of the fire degraded quickly so a defensive operation was set up to contain the flames as they consumed the building, at one point the roof failed causing a front wall to collapse into the street.  It wasn't until 10 :51 pm that the fire was reported to be under control. Off duty personnel from C-Shift were called into to staff spare apparatus to provide protection to the city while the fire was taking place.  At 3:03 am the last company would finally clear from the scene.
