I attended a Still & Box overnight at 2020 W Webster in the Bucktown neighborhood. Companies originally reported fire in the rear of this 1.5 story residence, and were interior making a good push. However, the cold wind soon took hold of the attic space and heavy fire conditions evolved. All companies were pulled out, Tower 21 was moved to Side A, and knocked the fire with their aerial master stream. Companies went back in to mop up.

On December 11th at 8:55 hours, Grand Rapids fire crews were alerted to the report of an apartment fire at the Ridgewood apartments on the city’s SE side. Companies arrived with smoke showing from the eaves, pulled several attack lines and began an aggressive interior attack while other companies preformed searches and opened up.

Due to 55mph+ winds fueling the fire, it quickly spread through the void spaces, walls, and attic causing heavy heat and rapidly deteriorating fire conditions. Crews transitioned to a defensive posture and fought the fire with several hand lines and master streams. Three firefighters were injured and are expected to be ok.

Assignment: E4 E10 E11 L4 P2 R1 C5 Auto Aid: Kentwood E52 C3 2nd alarm: E6 E3 E5 E9 R2 C6 C4 C20 C7

I took a short ride into the city and went to a working fire in the 20th Battalion at 1502 W 79th Street. Companies had a 3-sty ordinary, vacant building with a fire on the 2nd floor. Engines 129 and 101 lead out lines and Truck 50 & 41 members made the roof. I arrived right after the first-in company. The full gallery is on my site.
