At 2042, Engine 22 was traveling south on RT-15 when they saw fire coming from the Condo building at 104 Mercer Ct. Engine 22 advised communications and Box 1-2 was sounded. Company 1 units arrived to find heavy fire showing from a ground floor patio area. Communication advised of 3 possible trapped victims on the upper floors. The engine crew stretched a line and begun fire attack while the tower crew made entry to perform a search. Crews assisted several residents out of the building and the occupants of the fire unit were transported with non life threatening injuries for a check up. The fire was held to the patio where it started, the sprinkler system stopped the extension into the building. Great job to all crews on performing searches and assisting residents to safety.
