Last evening around 8 pm Truck 4 was dispatched into Wilmerding for a reported kitchen fire. Truck 4 arrived and placed ground ladders, performed primary searches and assisted with ventilation. A stove-top fire that did not extend into the structure was quickly extinguished by the Engine crews. About 3 hours later another reported kitchen fire in the first due was dispatched. E-42 arrived with another stove-top fire that was quickly extinguished, did not extend into the structure and created a moderate smoke condition.
