Tuesday, 26 August 2014 12:34

On Sunday August 24, 2014 at 1642hrs, PSC started to receive phone calls reporting an explosion in a house in the 4700blk of Decatur St in company 9's first due. Engine 73 was dispatched as the second due engine and responded with 6 personnel. Engine 73 arrived on the scene just after the engine from company 9. With the engine from 9 picking up the hydrant in front of the house Engine 73 laid a line to 47th Ave, advanced their 400' pre-connect to back up the first due engine, and assisted with laddering the house.

With the fire being contained to the room of origin and minor extension, command held it to the engine from 9, Engine 73, and truck 9 to operate inside the house. The two engine crews worked quickly with the assistance of the truck company and the fire was brought under control. Command scaled back the assignment to one and one. Engine 73 cleared the scene at 1729hrs.
