Edward and Clippert vacant dwelling
07/05/16 Detroit, MI – Several firefighters narrowly escaped being seriously injured after a wall collapsed on this vacant dwelling going throughout.
The following are images of a Box Alarm in Detroit on April 17, 2016. The address was 13028 Camden St and the call came in at 12:05 p.m. Typical Detroit going throughout with the successful protection of the “B” side exposure. People may get tired of seeing the same ole, same ole out of Detroit but as an out-of-towner, it is not something I see every day and it was interesting to watch. If you’ve never witnessed something like this in person, the heat is immense. I found it interesting how they used the water curtain to keep the heat down for the firefighter using the exposure line. Again, not something I see every day and interesting to watch.

2nd fire of the night at this address. Earlier, companies had a small fire on the first floor of this vacant 4-flat prompting a Box Alarm response. They made an aggressive interior attack and extinguished the fire quickly. Almost 30 minutes after companies left the scene, E42 was sent back for a rekindle. Upon arrival, E42 asked for the Box to be filled out and an extra company for RIT at the same vacant going throughout. The exposure building, an identical vacant, got going in the attic as well. 4 lines were led out. Companies assigned: E42, E40, E39, E44 (RIT), Highland Park E, S5, L17, and C8.
