At 4:17 p.m. on Thursday, a structure fire was dispatched for 600 Stewart Avenue in Lockland. Wyoming Squad 97 and Ladder 97 were on this initial dispatch along with units from Woodlawn, Lincoln Heights, Forest Park, and Evendale. Heavy smoke from the fire in apartment number 17 blocked seven of the residents who had to be rescued by firefighters via  ladders. Wyoming Rescue 97 was special called for its air cascade system, scene lights, and additional firefighters approximately 30 minutes into the fire. A total of 16 Wyoming firefighters assisted at the scene. All eleven families displaced by the fire were assisted by Red Cross for alternative emergency housing.
