On Wednesday afternoon (7/6/22), we followed a column of smoke and came upon a well-involved 3-sty newly constructed house @ 910 N Wood, extending to 912 N Wood in Chicago. This home was under construction at the time of the fire, and appeared to be receiving spray foam insulation. Engine 30 arrived and deck-gunned the front of the house, while Engine 14 backed down the alley and deck-gunned the rear. In all, six hand lines were in use with the two deck guns. Heavy fire consumed the attic space of the exposure house to the north. CFD did a great job and brought it under control quickly. Here are some shots from the fire. Full gallery is on our site.

Here are some images taken at the Good Friday fire at Antioch Baptist Church in Chicago. The fire went to a 3-11. I was on the scene within 5 minutes and was able to catch the early progression of the incident that was caused by workers using a propane torch on the roof.

Fireworks are believed to have started this fire that consumed a large home on Ashley Parkway in Sarasota, FL. The first engine on scene found it well involved, and went defensive. Battalion 2 requested a 2nd alarm, and then a 3rd alarm. One firefighter was treated on the scene for an injury. No other injuries noted, the home was a total loss.

At 23:56, Thursday evening 17-March, Colleton County (SC) Fire-Rescue units were sent to the 100 block of Gadsden Loop for a structure fire with entrapment. On arrival, Car 118 found a single-story brick veneer dwelling well-involved with fire coming from the roof, front windows, and door. A 24-year-old occupant advised she was on the front porch when she heard a loud pop inside the home. When she went to investigate, the power was off and she found smoke banked about four feet from the floor. She made an attempt to reach a 59-year-old female in a back bedroom, but was driven out by the heat and smoke. She ran down the street to get help and she returned with her uncle. The two attempted a second time to reach the woman inside but were unsuccessful due to the increased fire and smoke. They broke some windows, then alerted 9-1-1.

Firefighter-paramedics arrived six minutes after the dispatch. A Sheriff’s deputy had spoken to the occupants and verified the location of the woman. He directed firefighters to a front bedroom. Crews deployed multiple handlines to the building and placed a ladder in the bedroom window. They entered the bedroom to search for the woman when the bedroom flashed over with fire blowing out of both windows. Firefighters narrowly escaped by diving out of a window.

Two firefighters suffered non-life threatening burns. Crews worked for about 30 minutes to contain the blaze. They located the woman in a front bedroom, and she had no signs of life. The Coroner’s Office was contacted. The 24-year-old woman was treated by firefighter-paramedics for smoke inhalation and was transported by Fire-Rescue Medic 26 to Colleton Medical Center.

Fire units were on the scene for 4 hours. The cause of the fire appeared to be electrical in nature. The occupants advised the home had electrical issues and Fire-Rescue had responded to the location for electrical problems in the past. Although the home was heavily damaged in the fire, two rooms were saved with little damage to the contents. The Red Cross is assisting the family.
