Cambridge Ontario fire scene

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.

 Cambridge, Ontario firefighters responded to 16 Lisbon Pines Drive for a house fire May 8 2017. The two-story townhouse was fully involved on arrival. The fire was contained to the unit of origin due to good firefighting and the fire wall doing its job. I had just left the Ontario Fire Chiefs Convention trade show in Toronto with two other Box 690 members when the fire was dispatched. Another member of Box 690 provided rehab before we arrived on scene. The photos were taken approximately an hour and twenty minutes into the call.
