Smeal fire engine at Detroit fire scene

3/11/19 – On the way back home from a fire on Mansfield, Central office put a Box Alarm out for 17th Ave X Buchanan. We were only about a mile away from it on I-96. We arrived before any of the first-due companies and starting shooting pictures. Engine 39 arrived and stretched. The crew attempted to make a push in the front door but Chief 5 pulled them out almost immediately due to the amount of fire venting from the roof. They took a defensive posture and put Ladder 7 to work. The home was occupied and DEMS transported the homeowner to the ER. I believe DFD was back twice after we left for rekindles which we did not make it too, but the last one was going throughout and had collapsed.
