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.
This fire was at Brush & E. Arizona in Detroit on 11/8/18. E44 stretched on a dwelling going throughout. C8 took a defensive posture and pretty much let it go. It had already go into the burned out house to the east and was starting the house to the west. With no other exposures, C8 and companies just let them go. Companies on this box were Engine 44, 35, HPE1, Ladder 18, Squad 3 and Chief 8.
A box alarm at 16th and MLK in Detroit. I arrived as the 2nd engine was stretching. A vacant dwelling was pretty much allowed to burn down current with DFD policy when no exposures are threatened. Ladder 8 is the last remaining tiller in service and suffered mechanical damage at this alarm, it’s end may be near.
