Companies were sent for a commercial box in southwest on 4/28/19. Engine 27 stretched on a commercial building at Vernor X Junction. Chief 7 reported they were taking a defensive posture and requested a platform.  They had a 2-sty, 100×200, occupied Dollar Store going through the roof. At the height of the fire, it had extended to a 2-sty taxpayer and ended up burning through that roof. In total, three aerial master streams and numerous landlines were used to bring the fire under control.

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.

This box was a fully-involved vacant at Hampton and Wayburne with no real exposures. They allowed the roof to burn off then hit it with the ladder pipe. Pretty typical job.
