Detroit Box Alarm 9149 Witt

04/29/15 Detroit, MI – Engine 33 had this fire three blocks from their quarters. They stretched on a dwelling with heavy fire on the first floor. The fire took about an hour to bring under control. Companies used multiple handlines, and Ladder 8’s aerial . Engine 33 dumped their monitor as well. The fire also extended to the attic of the number two exposure before being brought under control.

This job was a big miss.  A fully-involved, multi-unit dwelling … spectacular fire conditions … collapsed into a pile of rubble as we approached the scene. Got some nice images but nothing of tactical interest. The fire did get into an attic of a dwelling on the next block but that was contained with a redline.

This box was a fully-involved vacant at Hampton and Wayburne with no real exposures. They allowed the roof to burn off then hit it with the ladder pipe. Pretty typical job.

These shots are from 2735 Hooker. A fully-involved, vacant dwelling with a severe exposure problem to a two-flat. It still amazes me how well they keep the exposures protected with just a small hand line … usually only from the front. A ladder pipe was setup and this was over pretty quickly.
