Kitchener (ON) fire dispatch toned out P3, P4, Tanker 1, A1, R1, and Car 23 for a possible garage fire at 128 Limerick Road October 5, 2018 at 9:10. P4 reported a thermal column enroute to the call prompting Car 23 to add an additional pumper (P6). There are no hydrants on this street which had prompted the tanker to be dispatched with a full crew of four on the initial alarm.

P4 arrived on scene first reporting a large, detached garage fully involved, a vehicle in front of the garage fully involved, a wood-sided house well involved, a second garage possibly on fire on the E4 side, extension into a music studio four feet behind the garage, and siding melting on a second house on the E4 side of the fire. Due to the volume of fire, command requested incoming trucks catch a hydrant out on King Street and relay pump to the scene.

Approximately 2100 feet of 4” was laid into P4. Numerous small and large lines were deployed to fight the fire. Crews split up, one working on the garage, and a second on the wooden house where fire had extended into the dwelling. A third crew worked the rear knocking down the fire in the studio, and a fourth crew worked on the exposure garage and house. Firefighters did a great job knocking the bulk of the heavy fire in the first 20 minutes. Box 690 provided rehab. Pictures taken approximately 22 minutes into the fire.

Glastonbury CT had this working fire at 138 Naubuc Ave on 9/24/18 at 03:46. Original call was for an auto fire. Retoned 3 minutes later as a structure fire. The fire caused the power line to drop into the fire and then the gas meter let go and the fire was gas fed which extended into the house. Once utilities were secured the fire was quickly extinguished. More pictures here:
