All posts for the month July, 2019
In the early morning hours of July 22, 2019, Natick (MA) fire was dispatched to a reported fire on South Main Street. Companies had fire in the basement of a 100×120, one-story commercial structure. As crews advanced lines it was determined the fire was also on the main floor, necessitating additional alarms. Over the next few hours, a total of eight alarms were struck, bringing mutual aid from all over the Metro West region of Massachusetts. A ninth alarm was struck later on in the incident. These photos were taken over seven hours after the initial dispatch.

The Milwaukee Fire Department battled a 4th alarm fire at Aguilar’s Welding on West National Avenue near South 12th Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Friday, July 19, 2019. Plumes of smoke were visible from the Marquette Interchange. Extreme heat and hazardous building contents were making it hard for firefighters to extinguish the fire.
Firefighters from the City of London, Ohio, with mutual aid from across four counties, battled a 3-alarm fire in a storage facility (7/10/2019). At least 16 storage units were involved in the fire that erupted just before 5pm, as crews spent several hours working to extinguish the flames.
