Couple of shots from a fire in Kitchener 2/5/20. Fire started in the basement around the wood stove. Heavy smoke on arrival. We were already responding to call as PC reported heavy smoke and asked for an extra pumper. Tough fire to fight, had a walk in door to the basement on E3, but no windows. Crews went in with zero visibility and fire above their heads. Backed out right away and pulled additional lines. Fire eventually took hold of the main floor. The house is a total loss.

New Haven 2nd alarm 1303 Chapel St. vacant dwelling 
12/25/19 New Haven, CT – New Haven firefighters hoped for a quiet Christmas as they came on shift. Instead, as they pulled out of quarters for the box alarm, companies reported they could see it. Engine Company 6 arrived reporting a top floor fire. Multiple hand lines were stretched as the fire continued to grow. Companies made an interior attack, but were chased out due to deteriorating conditions. A 2nd alarm was transmitted as companies transitioned to exterior operations. Truck companies went to work with a tower ladder and ladder pipe operations. Additional two and half hand lines also flanked the dwelling on all sides to darken down the fire. It took companies about two hours to bring the fire under control. The cause of the fire is being investigated by the fire marshals office.
