During a last minute trip up to Detroit recently, we made it to a few jobs. Started the trip off by chasing a header on the westside to find an auto going in a vacant lot. After calling 911 and being on hold for some minutes, we finally got a call taker who then dispatched E42. This was at Monica X Westfield on 3/9.

This bunch of photos is from a fire in the 4th Battalion @ Mansfield X Kendall on 3/11/19 in Detroit. Crews had a tough time bringing the fire under control at this one. Big joint, about 50’x75′ with a gambrel roof.

This one was at Coplin & Promenade on the east side of Detroit. Early morning fire that I took in but arrived after it was knocked. E50 stretched on a 2-sty vacant with fire on the 2nd floor.

This was around midnight on W. Warren @ Scotten in Detroit. Squad 4 arrived and advised the first engine would be stretching and they had possibly two dwellings going. Engines 39 and 42 both dumped their monitors which pretty much saved the occupied dwelling to the west.

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.
