A box alarm at 16th and MLK in Detroit. I arrived as the 2nd engine was stretching. A vacant dwelling was pretty much allowed to burn down current with DFD policy when no exposures are threatened. Ladder 8 is the last remaining tiller in service and suffered mechanical damage at this alarm, it’s end may be near.

All can be seen here:

 

Saturday evening, March 24th, 2018. Detroit, Highland Park, and Hamtramck responded to the corner of Woodward and Arizona for the report of a fire in a commercial building. This structure was on the NE corner, just across the street from Highland Park in Detroit. It was most recently used as a taxi company dispatch. Companies attempted an interior attack but went defensive shortly after with the truss roof in a compromised position.
