Cambridge, Ontario firefighters were dispatched to a confirmed structure fire October 2, 2017 at 16:30. The fire was located at 145 Vanier Road in the south end of town. The area is rural with no hydrants, so the tanker was dispatched with four of the five stations. North Dumfries’ tanker was requested on mutual aid to augment the water supply. The call came in as a fully-involved, large shed full of wood. Crews reported a good loom-up on route. I could see the smoke from Kitchener 15 miles away. P5 arrived with flames 25-35 feet in the air with grass fires around the structure. Two lines were pulled to attack the grass fires first then work on the building. The fire was started by an ember from an unattended fire. The owner was burning scrap wood to clean up his property. The 20 x 70’ shed was packed with cut pine wood. The first photo was taken by our Cambridge Canteen member Rick Maguire, approximately 20 minutes into the fire. The balance of the shots were taken when I arrived 35 minutes into the call. Box 690 provided rehab.

Kitchener fire dispatch toned out New Dundee (ON) firefighters for a vehicle fire at 1305 Bleams Road just after 13:00, October 5, 2017. New Dundee District Chief 201 was the first to reply and asked for an update. Dispatch advised a tour bus was on fire behind the house and close to two sheds. 201 asked for a second alarm adding Baden to the fire. New Dundee and Baden arrived a minute apart. The Baden district chief did a 360 and advised a fully-involved bus with no exposure issues. The fire was knocked down in 10 minutes with no damage to any of the exposures. Early video was taken just as firefighters were arriving by Box 690 member Bill McIntyre. The later video I shot, arriving two minutes after firefighters arrived on scene. Box 690 provided rehab.

This was a real dandy. The Fire Alarm office calltaker and dispatcher was the late Dick Hyland. You can also hear Bob Phelan as well as Matt Tomlin briefly on the radio and Al Andersen was the switchboard guy that handled most of the radio stuff. I took this job in. What a night this was! The DDC was Ed Altman way before his commissioner days and the responding District Chief was Louis Galante (which explains why this wasn’t a 5-11). Some other voices you may find familiar Jim Corbett on truck 12, Bob Welch as “3a”, Bill O’Boyle on Squad 1.

I’m sure there are many more to be recognized upon further review. This fire turned into a real spectacle. It ignited a scrapyard at 14th & State that went to a box and it also burned up El ties along the tracks for about 2 blocks. To top it off Snorkel 1 got stuck in the partially raised position and members had to be rescued via ground ladder as the radiant heat was getting brutal. After the building collapsed they found a guy who was sleeping in a vehicle next to the fire building who had to be extricated with a hurst tool since the car was squashed by the falling wall.

I was standing too close at the time of the collapse and as I was running saw a member get knocked down by flying bricks. I believe he broke his leg … a narrow miss for me.  This was a real all time classic job. I will never forget it.
