SAFD || WORKING HOUSE FIRE || Late into the night, (11/20/16) at approx. 2145hrs, San Antonio FD companies were dispatched to the 2800 blk of Whisper View St on the city’s north side for a reported structure fire. Engine Company 37 checked on scene with
“… really heavy, thick black smoke coming from the attic and garage. The homeowners are saying the fire’s in the garage. We’ll be pulling our preconnect. Command will be mobile.”
A working fire was declared bringing in a medic unit, EMS officer, and a mobile air compressor unit. Companies made quick work in the garage and attic utilizing every preconnect off of 37’s wagon, as well as both of their red lines. Early on during the fire, there were concerns for the companies inside as one of the preconnects had a significant hole in it.
Everyone that was home at the time of the incident made it out safely. Units stayed on scene for well over an hour and a half overhauling and getting their rigs back in service. Companies on the Box were EN37, EN31, EN43, TK37, M37, EMSO[spare], FSO, BC05, and MAC41.
