Just came back from a quick trip to Detroit. Here are a few quick images of a Box Alarm at 9337 Decatur Street on Saturday, October 10th. Heavily involved on arrival, companies were defensive from the start. Ladder 14 was working their aerial but a lot of trees made it hard to get a good shot.
Detroit 2nd alarm Commercial Building 19161 Schaefer
04/28/15 Detroit, MI – Shortly before 7pm, this fire broke out in the Church of God in Christ. First-due companies noted that they could see it. Companies arrived and found fire through the roof of this two-story, commercial building. Chief Four transmitted a second alarm on the box. Companies went defensive and quickly knocked down the heavy fire.
This last job was the best of the trip … heavy fire in a vacant at Pennsylvania and Canfield Andover and Winchester with communication to two others. Interesting response as Hamtramk and Highland Park were due. I finally I got a shot of a Hamtramk rig. This was a good job and a good stop in my opinion. A little deck gun application before we arrived really bought some time.
These shots are from 2735 Hooker. A fully-involved, vacant dwelling with a severe exposure problem to a two-flat. It still amazes me how well they keep the exposures protected with just a small hand line … usually only from the front. A ladder pipe was setup and this was over pretty quickly.
