Kitchener (ON) fire dispatch received a 9-1-1 call for a house fire at 1242 King Street East July 13, 2018 at 00:37. P3, P4, A1, R1, and Car 23 were dispatched to the call. P3 arrived on scene reporting heavy fire venting 30 feet out the E2-E3 corner of the two-story house. Live wires were hanging down across the street preventing the quint from setting up in front of the house. P4 picked up a hydrant on the way for P3. Hydro was cut to the entire area to allow firefighters to enter the house. Crews pulled numerous lines from both pumpers to attack the fire. Interior crews were able to knock the fire down on the main floor and perform primary searches of the basement and main floor. Heavy fire and high heat prevented searching the second floor. Firefighters were pulled out to go defensive. P3 set up their aerial to attack the fire venting out the roof. The fire was knocked down approximately an hour after pulling out. Portions of the roof collapsed, but since firefighters were all exterior there were no injuries. Damaged was pegged at $500,000, no cause has been released at this time. Box 690 provided rehab on this warm summers night.

The Cambridge Ontario fire department dispatched A3, P2, P1, P5, R1, and Car 6 for a possible structure fire at 509 Speedsville Road May 20 2018, at 19:45. A3 arrived on scene and reported a large, two-story, stone building with fire on the second floor, and defensive firefighting only. The area has limited hydrants, but one was right in front of the property. Two 4” lines were connected to the hydrant to feed A3 and P2. Water pressure was very low so a portable pump was set up in the Speed River approximately 250’ from the fire to augment water supply. A4, the last truck in the city was added to the call once they cleared a med call.

Additional firefighters were called in to staff spare equipment and were rotated to the fire over the course of the night. P5 reverse laid approximately 1200 feet of 4” hose to a second hydrant and relay pumped to A4 once they arrived and set up. Multiple lines were pulled to attack the fire from three sides. Both aerials flowed water once the fire broke through the roof. The second floor had two apartments and storage rooms that were loaded with household materials and furniture. Firefighters worked for hours before bringing the fire under control at 1:30. A3 and A4 were repositioned around 1:00. P2, P1 and P5 cleared the scene over the next couple of hours. Crews were rotated back to the fire over the next nine hours. Box 690 provided rehab.

Photos and videos were taken 20 minutes into the call after running off a nearby golf course to get to the fire.
