This job was a big miss.  A fully-involved, multi-unit dwelling … spectacular fire conditions … collapsed into a pile of rubble as we approached the scene. Got some nice images but nothing of tactical interest. The fire did get into an attic of a dwelling on the next block but that was contained with a redline.

Several towns assisted the Glencoe Public Safety Department on Thursday (4/30/15) for a fire at the construction site at 328 Tudor Court. Several pallets of styrofoam were burning on the roof.

This last job was the best of the trip … heavy fire in a vacant at Pennsylvania and Canfield Andover and Winchester with communication to two others. Interesting response as Hamtramk and Highland Park were due. I finally I got a shot of a Hamtramk rig. This was a good job and a good stop in my opinion. A little deck gun application before we arrived really bought some time.

On Saturday April 25th at approximately 6:55pm Batavia (IL) was dispatched to an automatic alarm at 601 Kingslands Dr. Companies arrived to find heavy smoke in the building, and subsequently upgraded to a general alarm and then to a MABAS box alarm.

The fire was knocked down quickly, but heavy smoke remained throughout the building. A special call was made for the MVU from MABAS Division 1 to assist in ventilation.

This box was a fully-involved vacant at Hampton and Wayburne with no real exposures. They allowed the roof to burn off then hit it with the ladder pipe. Pretty typical job.
