A box alarm at 16th and MLK in Detroit. I arrived as the 2nd engine was stretching. A vacant dwelling was pretty much allowed to burn down current with DFD policy when no exposures are threatened. Ladder 8 is the last remaining tiller in service and suffered mechanical damage at this alarm, it’s end may be near.
