Engine 73 and Chief 7A Run 55 House PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 26 February 2015 12:39
On the morning of February 12, 2015 at 0528hrs PSC started to receive multiple calls reporting a house on fire in the 4000blk of 37th st. Engine 73 was dispatched as the third due engine and Chief 7A as Battalion Chief 884. First arriving units reported on the scene with heavy fire showing. Chief 7A arrived on the scene just behind the first arriving units and established the 37th St Command. Command advised the correct address and that we had one house fully involved with extension to another house on side Delta. Engine 73 arrived on the scene laying their own supply line and advancing a cross lay down side Bravo of the house to preform a basement check and protect the Bravo exposure. Command asked for the task force alarm for extra manpower. The decision was made for exterior operations on the main house fire and interior attack on the extension to the Delta exposure. 
All searches were negative and command scaled back the assignment just after 0800hrs. Engine 73 had a total of 4 attack lines pulled and placed in service on this call.
