Cambridge Ontario firefighters responded to a house fire on Sekura Crescent December 15 2015 just after 16:00. P1 was first on scene reporting a fully involved, 1.5-story abandoned house. The 360 revealed the basement was flooded and had heavy fire on the second floor. All firefighting was to be defensive.
Firefighters knocked the bulk of the fire down in an hour. P5 laid in 1,000 feet of 4” high vol from Sekura. The long lay in and low pressure hydrant required a second hydrant to augment the water supply. Firefighters pulled 500 feet of 4” hose through a bush from Kovac Road. Firefighters stood by for hours tending to hot spots and waiting for a high hoe to arrive to tear the building down.
Box 690 on scene 4.5 hours providing rehab and dinner for firefighters.
