Detroit firefighters working at a dwelling fire

I was in Detroit for a few days earlier this week. I only made it to a few fires. This was a Box Alarm @ Tillman and W. Warren. We arrived right with Engine 34 and I was able to get them stretching. Looked like a small fire in the first floor front room. Ladder 22 vented it as they were making entry with the hoseline. The boys made a quick knockdown and brought it under control.

On Sunday morning, April 9th, I had the great opportunity to shoot the Detroit Fire Department at work. I was driving down I94 at Van Dyke when a Box Alarm came in on Van Dyke just northwest of Mack. I arrived and got into position just before the first companies landed. The primary fire building was going throughout with the D side exposure heavily involved and the B side occupied going. The DFD did an incredible job of saving the occupied home under these intense conditions.

Engine 1 dumped their monitor to knock down the fire on the roof of the occupied while Engine 9 connected to a hydrant. Engine 1 then moved out of the way and tagged a hydrant down the block. Companies immediately made entry to the occupied exposure and stretched a line to that building’s attic. Hand lines were dropped to protect the occupied exposure and the first arriving truck directed an elevated stream on the same. When the primary fire building collapsed, the exterior wall fell outward onto the exterior of the occupied exposure. Even with this added obstacle, the exposure was still saved. It was good to witness the DFD do what they do best. Hope you enjoy the images.

Detroit FD Central Office put out a Box @ Van Dyke and The Edsel Ford Service Drive.  Engine 41 stretched on a 2.5-sty-wood frame right off the off ramp of the highway. Companies attempted to make an interior attack, but Chief 9 had companies go defensive. Josh Boyajian
