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.

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.
