Not a fire, but a Coast Guard vessel that accidently drove through a jetty along the beach on Hatteras Island and ran aground. I believe the pilot of this vessel is now cutting holes in the ice in the Arctic Circle!

Here are a couple pictures from awhile ago. October 1999. A subcontracting crew was replacing signs for the state. The crane operator knew enough to jump off and away from the truck, but he still hit the wires with the boom. They came up with a few excuses for why they hit the wires, but everyone knew that they were just rushing the job, and didn't want to wait for the utility company to come and get the wires out of the way. No one got hurt.

We had to wait for about 15-20 minutes watching the truck burn until utility trucks showed up. What really pissed me off about this incident is that one of the operators of one of the utility trucks was grousing about having to be there. He was making holiday+ overtime pay, I am a volunteer. On top of it all, he was on the road anyway that day, he wasn't called in.

Don't worry, airpacks were used, the second picture has a few of us immediately after removing packs with alot of steam around.

In the second picture I am standing behind Iron Mike working at the driver's door, helping him get it open.

Surround and drown stinks. It's almost like you lost. We had one a couple years ago, the classic old house where the fire got into the walls. The chief (relatively young and new), pulled everyone out. People kept asking to go back in, with many behind the back comments about the inexperienced chief. At least, until the back half of the house collapsed.

People can say what they want but at least everybody went home the next morning. Risk a lot to save a lot, Risk a little to save a little, Risk nothing to save nothing. When I was a fire fighter, on the handline, I had thoughts of being pulled too early also. Now, being a Captain and being responsible for my crew, their safety and well being is PRIORITY. No regrets

He looks to be off to the side, and a pretty good distance away. In CT last year we had a FF (forget the town) get a pressurized piston embedded in his leg. This is one of the pressurized pistons that holds open a hood or hatchback (this one was from the hood). Car fires are "fun" to go to, usually cool looking and a quick knockdown, but every once in a while things go wrong.

Great pictures. Especially the one at the bottom. We rarely get pictures of actual structure fires (of course we have plenty of drill pictures) because everyone is rather busy. By the time someone thinks to get a camera the fire is usually under control.

Hate seeing fire showing from the eves. Usually means a lot of overhaul, ripping out ceilings and getting into the attic crawlspaces. Good for the younger guys to do! lol

The fire originated from an air conditioner which was in the window where the heaviest fire was. The day before the fire the electrical inspector was at this guys house because he (the homeowner) put new service in without a permit. Oops!! Just after this pic was taken I vented the roof in 2 locations.

Took part in a 4 alarm commercial building fire last night. Initial dispatch was at 2130 or so, 2nd and 3rd hit about 2220, with another alarm's worth of stuff pieced in from transfer companies.

There was a lot of truck work on this one. This roof was a nightmare. There were several layers built over each other and at some points different levels to the roof. Most of it was built up roof with metal on top, you know the corrogated kind just large enough so your cutting wheels can't get into them easily. The building itself was a huge commercial building about 100 ft wide by about 1200ft. Our truck was on the 1st alarm and our engine on the third. I was on the engine. We spent some time in level 2 staging, then we were sent to side C where trucks needed a supply line. We layed about 500ft of 5 inch to Truck 2-3. Engine 8-4-1 was eventually added into that sequence to foam the line. After laying out we got sent to the roof. Half of the crew went up to assist in trenching the upper roof, my half was to cut an access in wall on the lower roof. After one saw ran out of gas as soon as we got it, the second one did ok until it leaked gas on the other guy with me light his leg on fire. He patted himself out and the line crew waiting for the hole put out the spot fire. They ended up not even using the hole we made and climb a ladder to the upper roof. We helped them drag their line up and by that time we were spent. It was hot and very humid. Luckily they started using another truck as an elevator rather than having us climb 35ft ladders to the lower roof. We spent some time in rehab, then we were assigned side C RIT most of the rest of the incident. My engine was the 4th last piece to leave at 0445. So far the best pics I've found are courtesy of Station 6-7 (http://www.67fire.com/fullstory.php?19758&PHPSESSID=b49bc995a8efe81cf8b528587268c474). I'll post any better ones that turn up.

I have some issues with the command on this one. Why did they wait so long to call for more resources? Why is a 3rd alarm engine laying a supply line? Why did we spend the whole night pouring water and foam down ventilation holes and wondering why the darn thing wouldn't go out?:( When you're in someone else's sandbox, you've got to follow their gameplan, but sometimes the gameplan is stupid. Sorry to vent on that dept, but they have a history of making stupid decisions like this.

One FF went down with chest pains and a few were treated for smoke inhalation. I don't know how the chest pain guy is doing (he's alive), but I believe he was from Lancaster Co Station 7-1. Total damage was estimated at $600k. Sorry if there's grammar and spelling mistakes, but I'm tired.

Am I the only one burning anything around here? ;f

Roger That!

But that cuts both ways.

At least at the call you describe, someone was giving orders. At most calls I've been to, the officers just walk around letting people do stuff. Granted, at a small call where it is just my own dept, we know each other and work together, but when mutual aid is involved someone has got to take charge and give orders.

Here's a pic from a huge barn fire I just got home from. It is a neighboring department's fire, however, there were approx 8 depts there with 11 tankers I think. It is (was) a 200x400 pole barn. Fully engulfed when toned. This pic is about an hour into it. The pic is a bit blurry, the camera was zoomed as much as it would and was taken about 600 yrds away.

How did you imbed that pic of the house fire...?

Generally, you have to have a site that will host your pics and allow linking. Upload your pics to a site like Photobucket...

Once you open a pic from the hosting site you then, right click on the pic, left click on propertys, highlight the entire address, copy it, go to your Post window, click on IMG and paste it in the drop down bar. NOTE, when you click on the IMG button and the bar opens up you'll notice that the HTTP:// will already be there and probably highlighted... Either erase (easiest) this one or erase it from your properties address. You can't have them both there...

You may be able to link from your FC's website...

Edit: I see some of your pics are coming off of Imageshack... You got the idea....

A bit of background on me though first... I'm not a fullfledge FF. I do work security at a Nuke plant though and am on the inhouse firebrigade... I have had a fair about of training, industrial type though and have been to the college in Sarnia, Canada and at Morris Ill. This is sweet/sour but luckily I haven't busted my cherry yet...

I see that for the most part the fire in the pic is what seems to be mostly out. Wind is quartering from left to right and it appears to be moving diagonally from front to back...

There is a Vent team on the front windward side of the roof preparing to cut a vent in the roof... I would seem to me that a vent here would allow the wind to force the heat and smoke back down into the house conteracting any drafting allowed by the lower front windows being knocked out... Wouldn't a vent on the back side be better served or, is there already a vent in the roof on the back side...?

BTW, those two guys are hanging there pretty precariously. I think I would have stretched a ladder from the peak to peak of those dormers... Looks like they would have reached...

I was told that the adults got out leaving a BABY inside.

One of the men ran back in and as he was coming back down, with the baby, the stairs they collapsed.

They got out.
