So how did that turn out? From the looks of the smoke coming out the eaves in the front, did the fire fill the attic? That can be a pain to put out. Good pictures!
I am the guy on the nozzle. After the atric flashed the other hoseline (D side) was redeployed after the second pic to the B side where it hit the attic opening. Very sucessful at knocking down a majoriry of the attic portion. In the end attic gutted (nothing up there in storage unbelievably), kitchen(back of the house) gutted, room above the kitchen gone aswell. Large amounts of smoke damage (obiously). But it will be rebuilt.
Stumbled on this thread. This video is amazing to a civilian like me. I cannot believe how quickly and, yes, bravely you guys ran into that blazing house and doused that fire. Amazing. Much appreciation for what you do!!
Only one engine on that assignment? (the pics a few posts up, not the video link)
1 Engine, 1 Quint, 1 Squad, 1 Medic, Bc, and Misc Admin types is a full assignment for my dept. 2 mutual aid Engines were also dispatched. By the time they arrived the fire had been knocked down mostly.
We are a 2 station 13 people shift dept.
Got beat into MY 1st due while returning from another district. Still put some of the first water on it.
Nice! Up close and personal...Enjoyed the forcible entry.
Looks like balloon construction. I hate those, fortunately most in my district have been razed for new home construction or burned down over the years.
Last night sucked. I worked at my part time job on a hospital based ambulance.I was the third ambulance in for the mother but ended up helping with the kids.
Just had a big apartment fire. ill let the pics tell the story haha
Scary crap the bars on the windows. We have one house in our district that has really heavy security gates. Another in the next district over (our truck response) with steel shutters. Asked our BC's several times for a plan and never get an answer.
We had a local fire fighter caught in a flashover last year - second floor and behind security/safety bars.
It is after picture 18 or 19 in this sequence that he jumped from the 2nd floor (not shown)
Not recent, but this woke me up at 0-Dark-30 one night. Yard across the street from me.....

Took the pics and video after I got off my belly, lying on the ground at the guy's head for like half an hour waiting for him to be ready to be loaded into the Amber Lamps.
AirCare 5 LZ class at our station. Training is important work, too:

We have those, too.
Retired FF/PM and new to the site.
Still have a "few" pics around here...most of them are on 35mm... shooting a clean pic while she's hooked can be a real PITA. The digital camera helped a lot. As stated...have to be careful what goes up on the net.
Be safe out there, stay low....and have fun.
This fire was lapping the eve of the house when we arrived. Any delay in response would have resulted in damage to the home. So how do politicians choose which stations to close?
Lots of good pics! Ill dig up some from some calls, and post a few of our rigs.
cool pictures everyone.
Fire Marshal training
To carry OC you must be sprayed with OC. It is a experience to say the least.
