On Tuesday February 18th at 15:17 hours, the Grand Rapids Fire Department was alerted for fire at the corner of Eastern and Oakdale SE. Engine 10 arrived with heavy smoke showing from a one-story commercial building. Companies began a offensive attack and performed searches of the building. The building had three separate areas, and crews conducted primary searches in the other areas which proved negative. After sending multiple crews inside, command pulled everyone out and they started operating in a defensive posture. Several handlines and aerial streams were used to bring the fire under control. 

Initial assignment was Engine 4, Engine 10, Engine 11, Rescue 1, Rescue 2, Ladder 4, Car 5, Car 3, extra Engine 2, Engine 6, and Platform 2.                         2nd Alarm brought Engine 3, Engine 5, Engine 9, Ladder 1, Ladder 3, ADV 1, Car 2, and Car 6.

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.

I happened upon this fire while driving through Indiana with my wife several years ago. My wife was driving and I spotted the header just off I65 north of Indianapolis, and though she wasn’t thrilled, she pulled off the highway and we found the fire.

I jumped out and started shooting. I don’t have much information about the fire. This is from the Lebanon Reporter:

Fire at Commercial Air

Firefighters from Center and Lebanon fire departments work to reach the attic of the Commercial Air Inc. storage building at 1201 Ransdell Court Friday. There were no known injuries. At press time, arson investigators were beginning to sift through the debris, searching for the cause of the 8:30 p.m. fire. The fire was declared under control about an hour later. The blaze was reported by a Center Township engine that had just been dispatched to a serious personal injury accident at the 138 mile marker of Interstate 65, just south of Lebanon. Further details were unavailable at press time.
