This was a response to the Detroit River and St. Jean for a boat on fire. The first company on scene reported a fire on the old Boblo Boat. Engine 32 stretched over 1000′ of hose to their closest hydrant. Companies took a defensive posture using 2 hand lines and the Detroit Fire Boat E-16. We arrived about 10 min into the incident. Companies on scene were Engines 32 & 52, Ladders 6 & 31, Squads 3 & 6, Fireboat 1 (E-16), and Chief 6.

Chicago’s 19th Battalion had a working fire this morning (Sunday, 6/24) at 7241 S. Sangamon. The fire came in at 5:45 and Engine 54 landed a short time later with a fire on the first floor. I arrived just in time to catch companies washing down. While the rear attic window was being laddered, a mother pitbull and 5 of her puppies came charging out the back door. Thankfully, all were friendly and didn’t seem at all bothered by the work going on around them.
