On Sunday afternoon January 8, 2023 Detroit firefighters fought their first extra alarm fire of the year. A one-story grocery store at Chalmers and Wilshire was destroyed in a two-alarm fire. Two aerials and handlines were used to bring the fire under control.
This fire was 1 block from E46’s firehouse @ Marcus X Grace. Engine 46 advised they were stretching on a commercial building. Engine 58 fed Ladder 23’s aerial, while Engine 41 fed Ladder 31’s aerial. Two master streams and two hand lines were used to knock the fire.
