4 Alarms Westford Ma – fire was in an occupied dwelling. No one was home at the time of the fire, but the fire did have a significant head start prior to arrival.  On arrival FF’s had heavy fire conditions out the front door pushing them back unable to gain entry.  Seven area departments arrived on scene mutual aid.  Hydrant lines were about 1 mile away from the building.  It took about 90 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

5 residents; 2 adults and 3 children were left homeless.  The fire was a total loss.

A Rentz Drive home was heavily damaged by a mid-day fire Saturday, 28-December. At 14:18, Colleton County (SC) Fire-Rescue was notified of smoke coming from the attic of a home at 355 Rentz Drive near the rural Hudson Mill Community. Engine 1 arrived six minutes later to find flames across the roof of the one story residential dwelling. Firefighters used a deck gun to knock down the heavy flames, then deployed multiple handlines to combat the fire. The roof collapsed shortly after fire units arrived. Crews had the fire under control in less than 30 minutes, but were on the scene for 2-1/2 hours. Water supply was conducted with a tender shuttle. Engine 26 setup drafting operations at a dry hydrant in a pond approximately one mile from the scene.

All of the occupants were able to safely exit the building when they discovered the fire. Most of the fire damage was isolated to the attic and roof, but the living area suffered water damage and drop down debris from the attic. Many personal items were salvageable, but the home suffered substantial damage. The origin of the fire appears to have been electrical in nature. The Charleston Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the family.

Jeff Rudolph submitted images from an overnight fire in Bristol, Wi which is just over the border from Illinois. The fire occurred in a two-story house in an area without hydrants, so multiple alarms were struck for water tenders. The fire began in the rear of the house, and the family inside was alerted by smoke detectors, but the fire had already climbed the house and was traveling in two directions along the soffit.

10/24/13 8325 184th Av. Bristol, WI Box 52-61 up to the 4th alarm.
