This fire this was at the corner of Yosemite and Kay. 11-02-13. It was extremely slow after Devils night. Very unlike Detroit.
We were in a good spot for a decent arrival time to this box, at McNichols and Hasse. 56 reported a vacant with fire throughout. The companies made an aggressive attack for a few minutes and then decided to just let it go, as the exposure problems were deemed to be minimal. Tactically the photos don’t show much but this provided an excellent photo opportunity for some nice “fire fan” shots. We spent quite a bit of time here snapping away before going back in service.
