I was in Rogers, AR in December of 2014 and attended a burn-down of a small house after the fire department used the structure for training.

The Milwaukee Fire Department battled a 4th alarm fire at Aguilar’s Welding on West National Avenue near South 12th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Friday, July 19, 2019. Plumes of smoke were visible from the Marquette Interchange. Extreme heat and hazardous building contents were making it hard for firefighters to extinguish the fire.

Kitchener (ON) fire dispatch toned out Baden and New Dundee stations for an attached garage fire at 1 Deerfield Extension in Petersburg, May 8 at 18:55. Baden requested a full response from New Hamburg while en route to the fire and reported smoke showing minutes before they arrived on scene.

Heavy fire was venting from a two-car, attached garage. Multiple small and large hand lines were pulled and knocked down the bulk of the heavy fire in 15 minutes with some extension into the attic of the house. There were several of propane tanks in the garage and a propane BBQ. Water was shuttled from the nearest hydrant four miles from the scene. Very good stop keeping the fire to the garage. Box 690 provided rehab. Photos taken 20 minutes into fire.

Woolwich Township (ON) firefighters were dispatched to a fully involved shop fire May 11th at 4:40 at 1088 Wittick Road. Floradale station reported they could see heavy fire from the station approximately 2.5 miles from the scene. Firefighters arrived to a fully involved 100’ x 30’, steel sided shop, which was attached to a large barn. Fire had extended into the barn.

Floradale pumper set up beside the barn and had their tanker drop a port-a-tank, dump their load, and drop their LDH to the road. Elmira’s pumper set up two port-a-tanks on the road for the five tankers to fill. Elmira’s aerial was at a hydrant in Elmira approximately 3.5 miles from the scene to fill tankers. Multiple lines were pulled around the structure.

The owners of the property were able to get most of the cattle from the barn. The interior crew was able to knock the fire down in the hay mow and the main floor of the barn. Crews outside cooled two large propane tanks and were able to hit the fire on the exterior of the barn. One fuel tank bled off just as I walked up to the scene.

Firefighters made a very good save on the property. No cattle were lost and the barn is still standing. One or both of the silos may need to be replaced. Damage has been pegged between $500,000 and $1,000,000. Box 690 and the Floradale Women’s Auxiliary provided rehab to the 50 firefighters on scene.
