After being in quarters for less than an hour after an unattended cooking call in Hunters Crossing Apartments, Aetna was alerted shortly before 2am for a single engine to assist the Christiana Fire Company.  Christiana had originally received the call as a fire alarm, but the call was upgraded with fire showing at 15 Brookmont Dr in Sparrows Run.  Aetna was then dispatched and  Engine 8-2 made the response with a crew of 6.  Upon arrival the crew reported to Brookmont Command (Deputy and was directed to perform a secondary search of the structure.  The crew encountered smoke in the basement and worked through limited visibility to perform the search, which yielded negative results.  The crew reported such back to command and stood by  per his request until cleared at 0245.
