Kitchener (ON) Fire dispatch received multiple calls for a house fire at 31 Pattandon Ave, 8 September 2018, at 8:40. P1, P3, R1, A2, and Car 23 were dispatched on the first alarm. A contractor working across the street helped the elderly occupant escape the fully charged house with her two dogs before firefighters arrived. P3 arrived on scene first reporting multiple garages, and a large tree on fire in the rear with extension into the house. Crews were split between the garages in the rear and the house. Fire extended into the house through a rear wooden porch. P4 was added to the call as the RIT pumper. Two 2.5” lines were pulled for exposures, a third 2.5” was pulled and split into two 1.5” attack lines, and the two 1.5” bumper attack lines were also deployed. Heavy fire was knocked down in 20 minutes with overhaul taking another two hours. The fire ran up the walls of the house and into the roof necessitating interior and exterior overhaul of the steel roof and interior walls. This was a very hot humid day in southern Ontario with the high reaching 111F. Three additional pumpers and an aerial were dispatched to relieve crews on scene. Box 690 served 134 cold drinks, as well as snacks and lunch. Cooling towels were used by firefighters to cool down. Photos taken half an hour into the fire after setting up rehab. Damage estimates will exceed $250,000, cause still under investigation. Fire started in the rear beside one of the garages.

Truro Township (OH) firefighters, with mutual aid from numerous other companies, battled a 3-Alarm blaze in a Reynoldsburg hotel 8/9/18. First due Truro Township companies (Department 160) reported heavy fire out the front of the building, and Battalion 161 immediately requested the second alarm.

Mutual aid companies from Columbus, Mifflin Township (130), Jefferson Township (140), Whitehall (150), Hamilton Township (180), West Licking Joint Fire District (401), and Violet Township (590), along with Box 15, Reynoldsburg police, and Columbus police all assisted. One firefighter was treated and released on scene, and one person was transported for unrelated medical issues.

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.
