A few shots of a house fire in Wellesley Township, Ontario from February 28, 2020 at 1331 Queens Bush Road. All three township stations on scene, Wellesley, St Clements, and Linwood. Wellesley firefighters had to drive by the fire to get to the fire hall at 1379 Queens Bush Road, six doors up the street. Heavy fire through the roof of house on arrival. Defensive fire fight from the beginning. Shots taken 45 minutes in, after a slow snowy drive to Wellesley. Bitterly cold night, Box 690 provided rehab.

Kitchener (ON) fire dispatch received a call for smoke coming from the vents of a house at Lobsinger Line and Green Hills Road. Linwood and Wellesley stations were toned out on the first alarm January 11 at 14:00. A volunteer firefighter was just down the road at the township office and was on scene in two minutes reporting a working fire. St Clements Station was toned out on the second alarm as well as Box 690 at 14:04.

Crews found fire in the basement and main floor with extension up to the second floor walls. No one was home and the fire was knocked down in an hour. Extensive overhaul needed on all three floors.

Photos taken an hour into the fire when I arrived on scene with the Canteen Truck. Two Box 690 members had rehab set up by 14:30 from their personal vehicles. Approximately 25 firefighters on scene with three rescues, three pumpers, three tankers, and a 82’ quint. Water was shuttled from a nearby cistern at a local church.

Kitchener (ON) fire dispatch toned out Linwood and St Clements fire departments for a working fire in a shop at 4540 Lawson Line, September 28 at 16:00. Wellesley deputy chief requested Wellesley station be added to the call once he came on the air. The fire started in an air collection system beside the 40 x 100’, aluminum sided building and spread into the walls and roof. The fire was knocked down quickly, but overhaul took two hours to pull siding and insulation from the walls and roof. Water was shuttled by tankers from a fire department cistern located one farm east of the fire. Photos were taken during overhaul, approximately 45 minutes into the call. Box 690 provided rehab to the 35 firefighters on scene.

Kitchener, Ontario fire dispatch toned out Wellesley and St Clements for a barn fire at 4610 Hessen Strasse, August 9 at 7:35. Wellesley Township acting chief requested dispatch tone out Linwood for a full response as well. The large barn was fully involved on arrival. The owners of the property were using a garden hose to try to cool a driving shed next to the barn. This quick thinking likely saved the building. All firefighting was defensive. Command requested a crew to the scene from Baden to assist in suppression. Due to drought conditions in the Township, and a total fire ban, command made the decision to totally extinguish the fire. A large backhoe was used to pull the barn apart. Water was originally shuttled from a fire department cistern half a mile from the scene. Once emptied water was shuttled from a large spring fed pond two miles from the scene. The fire was declared out at 15:00. Fortunately the farmer had just sold 100 head of cattle, but lost six cows and a horse in the fire. Damage has been pegged at between $300,000 and $400,000.  Box 690 provided rehab serving breakfast and lunch to the 35 firefighters on scene. Firefighters consumed 267 cold drinks over the course of the day.

Kitchener fire dispatch received a 911 call reporting a barn on fire on Shantz Station Road near Vance Road in Woolwich Township, Ontario, March 2 2016 at 12:30. Breslau, Maryhill, Conestogo, and St Jacobs were dispatched to the call. Dispatch updated units on route that they had a call from the Regional Airport tower, located just west of the scene, reporting a barn and possibly house on fire.

Maryhill district chief reported a large loom up on the way to the call and requested Elmira’s tanker to the scene. Breslau’s pumper tanker arrived on scene reporting a fully involved building with a small barn and house as serious exposures. Firefighters pulled numerous 1.5” and a 2.5” lines to fight the fire and protect exposures. Maryhill’s pumper set up on the road for tanker operations and relay pumping to Breslau’s pumper.

The house caught fire due to radiant heat, but crews were able to knock it down quickly. More than 30 firefighters worked for two hours before knocking the fire down. Woolwich firefighters made a very good save at this fire. The barn had minimal damage, and the rear section of the home can be repaired. The main section of the century old home was saved with no damage. Box 690 provided rehab for the call. The first photo was shot before crews pulled their first line.
