03/01/15 New Haven, CT 922 Winchester Avenue dwelling fire

New Haven firefighters arrived to find heavy fire on the top floor of this two and a half story, wood frame around three thirty a.m. Companies initially made an interior attack but were withdrawn due to a water supply issue. The fire soon took hold of the top floor and went through the roof. An exterior attack took about forty five minutes to darken down the fire before companies would regain entry to overhaul. All primary searches proved negative except for the removal of one family pet, a cat, which was found on the first floor. Several families were displaced. No one was injured in the blaze.

With sub zero wind chills at 0941 hours the Manchester, Ct Fire Rescue EMS Department responded to 61 Theresa Rd for a report of an explosion and fire. On arrival the members had heavy smoke showing from the garage. One occupant was transported to the hospital and two cats were rescued. With the front walks not shoveled it created a challenge for the members to get a line in the front door.  Mutual aid assisted at the scene and covered the MFRE stations.

Stay safe and warm,

Here are some photos and a video of the 2nd Alarm fire in Elmwood Park, IL (2/6/15). Elmwood Park companies had a report of a machine on fire at 35 Conti Parkway. Once the machine was knocked, interior reported they had fire in the rear that they could not reach with their line and asked for a second line. At the same time smoke conditions worsened and command was notified of an alarm at 36 Conti Parkway, and the first box alarm was struck. Companies eventually went defensive and a second alarm was requested.
