    Here's a couple of pics of a job we had this morning.....Century old 3-4 storey tenement in the North end of our City.After an aggressive interior attack,all crews were ordered out,just too much fire.....Guys don't like it,but we do what we're told.:(


    1.This is me facing the camera and my Officer in the red helmet

    2.My crew and I went up this rear stairwell and beat out all the windows allowing the fire to vent.According to the guy in this pic,we're still up there somewhere.

    3.After a while,I spelled a guy on the end of this aerial truck for a bit.

    4.Here's the result of two ladder trucks dumping thousands of liters of water into a building for a few hours:

    5.Myself (on the left) and a buddy doing nothing and trying to not get caught.:D

    The building ended up a total loss,leaving 15 homeless.Fortunately no injuries,but another hundred+ year old building gone forever.....We got out of there at about 1:00 and at 1:45 we caught an MVA where one lady required extrication.At 2:15 we got a body shop fully involved containing 4 classic cars....Although the building,3 of the cars and a new GMC Sierra were lost,we managed to save a '68 Ford Fairlane much to the owners appreciation.

    Not your average day for sure,but Hey,it's what we signed up for....Gonna sleep good tonight,day shift again tomorrow AM.:)
