Companies were sent for a commercial box in southwest on 4/28/19. Engine 27 stretched on a commercial building at Vernor X Junction. Chief 7 reported they were taking a defensive posture and requested a platform.  They had a 2-sty, 100×200, occupied Dollar Store going through the roof. At the height of the fire, it had extended to a 2-sty taxpayer and ended up burning through that roof. In total, three aerial master streams and numerous landlines were used to bring the fire under control.
