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.
This fire was 1 block from E46’s firehouse @ Marcus X Grace. Engine 46 advised they were stretching on a commercial building. Engine 58 fed Ladder 23’s aerial, while Engine 41 fed Ladder 31’s aerial. Two master streams and two hand lines were used to knock the fire.
This was on May 13th, a fire in the 9th Battalion @ Edmore X Cordell. Fire was out on our arrival but we took some shots of the new rigs and some of the members mopping up. Companies; Engine 50, 58, 52 Ladder 23 S6 C9
