Another Pair of Fires for B-Shift 3/18/2016 (PHOTOS)
Updated On: Mar 19, 2016

On March 18, 2016 at 9:01 am a fire was reported at 1419 Fordham Ct.  Engine Co. 4, Engine Co.8, Rescue Co. 1, Truck Co. 2 and Car 21 were dispatched.  Rescue Co. 1 arrived on scene and the officer reported a smoke condition, the activated the SRN which added Engine Co. 7 and Engine Co. 2 to the scene.  B-shift firefighters found a fire in a bedroom and stretched a 1 3/4" attack hose line into the structure.  Car 22 (Administrative Captain), Car 26( Deputy Chief) and the Fire Inspectors were called to the scene.  By 10:12 am all companies were clear from the scene. 

However, at 10:05 am just as the fire on Fordham Ct. was finishing up a fire at 712-10 N. Bromley Ave. was called in. Engine Co. 7, Engine Co. 4, Rescue Co. 1, Truck Co. 2 and Car 21 were dispatched.  Engine Co. 7 arrived on scene and reported a smoke condition, the assistant chief activated the SRN which added Engine Co. 2 and Engine Co. 10 to the scene.  B-shift crews were faced with a stubborn fire that was trapped in the floors and walls on both sides of this two family structure. As the method to extinguish the fire proved to me increasing labor intensive the assistant chief called a second alarm, adding Engine Co. 8, Car 30( Mobile Air) Car 26(Deputy Chief), Car 22(Administrative Captain), Car 5(Superintendent) and the Fire Inspector to the call. Off duty C-shift crews were recalled to staff spare apparatus to protect the city while the fire incident was open.  In total two hydrants were tapped to supply water and four 1 3/4" attack lines were used to extinguish the flames.  All companies were back in service by 12:43 pm.

The Officer in Charge was Assistant Chief J. Floryshak
