Cambridge, Ontario firefighters were dispatched to a confirmed structure fire October 2, 2017 at 16:30. The fire was located at 145 Vanier Road in the south end of town. The area is rural with no hydrants, so the tanker was dispatched with four of the five stations. North Dumfries’ tanker was requested on mutual aid to augment the water supply. The call came in as a fully-involved, large shed full of wood. Crews reported a good loom-up on route. I could see the smoke from Kitchener 15 miles away. P5 arrived with flames 25-35 feet in the air with grass fires around the structure. Two lines were pulled to attack the grass fires first then work on the building. The fire was started by an ember from an unattended fire. The owner was burning scrap wood to clean up his property. The 20 x 70’ shed was packed with cut pine wood. The first photo was taken by our Cambridge Canteen member Rick Maguire, approximately 20 minutes into the fire. The balance of the shots were taken when I arrived 35 minutes into the call. Box 690 provided rehab.

Kitchener fire dispatch toned out New Dundee (ON) firefighters for a vehicle fire at 1305 Bleams Road just after 13:00, October 5, 2017. New Dundee District Chief 201 was the first to reply and asked for an update. Dispatch advised a tour bus was on fire behind the house and close to two sheds. 201 asked for a second alarm adding Baden to the fire. New Dundee and Baden arrived a minute apart. The Baden district chief did a 360 and advised a fully-involved bus with no exposure issues. The fire was knocked down in 10 minutes with no damage to any of the exposures. Early video was taken just as firefighters were arriving by Box 690 member Bill McIntyre. The later video I shot, arriving two minutes after firefighters arrived on scene. Box 690 provided rehab.

I was in Detroit for a few days earlier this week. I only made it to a few fires. This was a Box Alarm @ Tillman and W. Warren. We arrived right with Engine 34 and I was able to get them stretching. Looked like a small fire in the first floor front room. Ladder 22 vented it as they were making entry with the hoseline. The boys made a quick knockdown and brought it under control.

A Ruffin family was displaced following an afternoon fire that destroyed half of their home Wednesday, 27-September. At 17:05, Colleton County (SC) Fire-Rescue was notified of the incident when a neighbor noticed flames coming from the roof of the home at 413 Double Churches Road. Engine 18 arrived minutes later to find heavy fire conditions on the west side of the single-story, residential dwelling. The roof over the garage had already collapsed.

Firefighter-Paramedics deployed two 1-3/4 handlines and forced entry through the front door. Crews made an aggressive interior attack and stopped the spread of the fire approximately half the way through the residence. The fire was under control within 25 minutes.

A search of the building found no occupants, however two canines perished in the fire. Firefighters buried the animals for the homeowner. The fire appears to have started in the area of the electrical panel in the garage. It moved into the attic from the garage. Firefighters stopped the fire approximately midway through the home, saving the rooms on the east side of the structure and some personal items. The remainder of the home suffered smoke, heat and water damage. Water supply was handled with a water shuttle using tenders. Fire units were on the scene for four hours.

Engine 18, Engine 26, Tender 4, Tender 7, Tender 18, Tender 26, Tender 27, Medic 18, Medic 26, Battalion 1, Car 105, Car 112 and Car 119 responded. Battalion Chief Brent Dalton served as Incident Commander.

Kitchener, Ontario firefighters responded to a report of an MVC with one vehicle upside down in the Grand River with entrapment, September 26, 2017 at 14:50. Three pumpers, rescue, aerial, haz mat, and chief responded to the call. Pump 2 arrived on scene reporting an SUV upside down in the river with an injured elderly women outside the car.

A passing motorist has been credited with saving the 80-year-old women’s life. The driver was unconscious with her head submerged in water when he cut her seat belt and pulled her from the vehicle. Firefighters and paramedics stabilized the patient on the side of the river. She was hoisted up in a stokes basket and transported to hospital.

Firefighters placed booms around the car to stop gas and oil from running down the river. A 60-ton rotator tow truck lifted the car from the river. Box 690 provided rehab to emergency crews on a very hot September afternoon. Southern Ontario was in a heat advisory with temperatures close to 100 F.
