Conestoga College pre firefighter students and Wellesley Township firefighters burned a house down 19 April 2013. The annual event gives students a chance for some hands-on firefighting in a rural setting. All firefighting is strictly exterior, supervised by career firefighters and trainers. Water was supplied from a creek located at the front of the property, approximately 600 feet from the house. Box 690 provided rehab and lunch for the 40 firefighters and students on scene.

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.

April 18th, 2016 in front of Detroit Medical Center’s Heart Hospital.  The ambulance had pulled out from underneath the bay after dropping off a patient.  Detroit Engine 1 made quick work of it and it was an interesting few minutes of photography … to say the least.

These images were taken on April 23rd at a house fire at 67th and Indiana in Chicago.  It was a bedroom fire that was out before I could make it down the block, but I did get a few interesting shots that I thought I would share here. Eric Haak
