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.
Detroit (MI) firefighters at the scene of a Box in Southwest Detroit on 2/20/23 at 9137 Falcon Street X Elsmere Street. Engine 33 advised they were stretching on a dwelling going throughout. 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.
On December 23, 2022 Detroit firefighters fought a four-alarm fire at 750 Canton Street at E. Lafayette. The block long, one- and two-story structure had several interconnected buildings and was filled with cars and boats. Frozen hydrants, low water pressure, blowing snow, zero wind chill, and high winds hampered the efforts of fire fighters to control the fire.
Firefighters in Wheeling, IL were dispatched to a house fire at 326 Renee Terrace just after 8PM on 2/5/22. Companies arrived to find heavy smoke and flames from a small ranch house. Snow piled against the hydrant in front of the house caused a slight delay in achieving a positive water supply but an aggressive interior attack darkened the fire quickly.
I took a short ride into the city and went to a working fire in the 20th Battalion at 1502 W 79th Street. Companies had a 3-sty ordinary, vacant building with a fire on the 2nd floor. Engines 129 and 101 lead out lines and Truck 50 & 41 members made the roof. I arrived right after the first-in company. The full gallery is on my site.
