The following are images of a Box Alarm in Detroit on April 17, 2016. The address was 13028 Camden St and the call came in at 12:05 p.m. Typical Detroit going throughout with the successful protection of the “B” side exposure. People may get tired of seeing the same ole, same ole out of Detroit but as an out-of-towner, it is not something I see every day and it was interesting to watch. If you’ve never witnessed something like this in person, the heat is immense. I found it interesting how they used the water curtain to keep the heat down for the firefighter using the exposure line. Again, not something I see every day and interesting to watch.
