On April 13th, 2023, the Indianapolis Fire Department had a Box Alarm for a fire in an occupied house @ 725 N Riley Ave on Indy’s Eastside. I live just a few blocks away and made it there with the first company. Fire was in a 2.5-sty, wood-frame with heavy fire in the rear extending up to the attic. Engine 20 stretched a 1.75″ line and made a quick push to the rear. Most of the fire was knocked down within a couple minutes. The full gallery is on our site.
Detroit FD (MI) Box Alarm on 2/21/23 @ 2124 Eastlawn Street X Kercheval Ave. Engine 52 stretched on a vacant dwelling going throughout. We got there pretty quick and got Engine 58 dumping their monitor. Companies on the box hit it from the outside for a few minutes but then made an aggressive push and knocked down the rest of the fire.
Got some nice shots, the full gallery link is HERE.

Upon our arrival, companies were attempting to make a push through the front door, but were ordered out of the house b/o Chief 7. This appeared to be an occupied house that was firebombed. Engine 33 stretched, and Engine 37 fed Ladder 13 for tower operations.
