At 16:32 on 10 April 2012, White Ridge Fire-Rescue received several reports of a working structure fire at 137 West Abbott St. Engine 7, 3 Truck, and Battalion 3 arrived on-scene and immediately issued a second alarm. The response was complicated by a house that had fallen into disrepair and several years of debris from hoarding. The response eventually grew to four alarms. Maydays were issued from the first and second floors of the building, issuing a fifth alarm. RIT entered and rescued all four firefighters. They were transported to North Lego Medical Center with injuries randing from cuts and bruises to fractures and internal injuries. All four are in stable condition at NLMC. The cause of the fire was determined to be electrical in nature. A short caused a spark, igniting the attic.
Complicated incident to say the least. Glad this one-s behind me, even though it was pretty good if I do say so myself!
Vary nice call you have here. I really like the hording part of, Keep'em up!
Some helpful info.: You would never use deck guns, and aerial streems while firefighters were inside a house. Its too dangerous of a situation.
