Made a quick trip to Detroit early last week … extreme cold conditions with high winds. In three days we only made this one job. Commercial building, 8 mile rd & Stansbury. This appeared to be an occupied warehouse with some good fire in the rear. It took us about 15 minutes to make it in, just in time to see the fire begin to vent through the roof and the interior attack abandoned. The wind picked up as well. Two members crawled or staggered out of the building and collapsed right outside the door, apparently low on or out of air. They appeared to be in dire condition but once they got clear of the building and some fresh air they seemed to be ok, although I think they both went to the hospital later in the incident. I believe this was a very close call. I haven’t spoken to any DFD members but I would bet this was a case of conditions deteriorating rapidly and the members having difficulty climbing over debris and such to make their way out. At any rate, things seemed to have a good outcome. The fire became an exterior operation and they seemed to be plagued by water pressure issues as well as rig problems. As usual, the tenacity of the members prevailed and carried the day. I also have a video as well.

Here are some shots from the Still & Box Alarm on Union yesterday. Companies had water problems at first, there wasn’t any hydrants on this street. The hydrant Engine 54 had to hit was in the alley behind the house that was on fire.

Chicago Still & Box Alarm @ 76th & Union – CHI-TOWN FIRE PHOTOS

Two residents were treated for smoke inhalation and a firefighter suffered an ankle injury at a house fire early Sunday morning (11-16-14) in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

The first engine on-scene found all of the four residents safely outside the two-story home where they could see smoke and flames on the second floor. Firefighters quickly began to attack the fire.

A firefighter suffered an ankle injury after slipping on ice.

Newport pulled box 14-48 to the 3rd alarm for a well-involved house that was also the office of a lawn sprinkler service. A tender shuttle supplied water to multiple handlines and then into Zion’s truck. Heavy fire consumed the house as crews where forced to fight from the outside. Jeff Rudolph

Here are some photos I took at Wadsworth’s 3RD Level Box on Sunday (11-16-14). I was down the street with a friend when we saw the smoke. I didn’t have a radio on me to see what was going on. We drove down towards the smoke and saw the fire. Newport had just gotten on the scene with the first Engine when I arrived. I got some photos of the apparatus and the house. There was a fire in the garage the previous night. Took to long too be a rekindle. This fire is now under investigation.

Also from Steve Redick

Arrived about 15 minutes into this job and was greeted with fire venting from the roof. Companies made the attic and hit the fire from below in pretty short order. Some items of interest … note the positioning of truck 55, some call this beaching … seemed to work very well here. Also note the ground ladder placement covering all sides of the structure. The images of squad 7 are of the same rig used in the show Chicago Fire. The 7 on the door looks like a good tape job to me and makes me think they’re gonna have this rig for a while. An interesting job in a normally very quiet area.
