Multiple Structure Fires, 131 East Street (Box 24-1)
Detail >>
Truck-22 was dispatched to 131 East Street in Williamstown for a structure fire. Truck-22 responded with a crew of seven, and upon arrival took side-A. One structure had fire well off, with extension to the structure on Side-D in the attic with heavy smoke and fire pushing out all attic windows. Companies 24 and 23 took the main fire building, and command assigned Truck-22 to the second fire building. There was no access for aerial use, so all seven ground ladders on the truck were pulled and set. The initial attack was with two crew members going to the roof of building-2 to ventilate and two crew members inside advancing a line to the attic. After the roof was opened up, the interior crew knocked down the bulk of the fire. The crew then began checking for extensions in building-2 while assisting Companies 24 and 23 with venting the roof of building-1 and going interior to assist with ongoing suppression efforts. Crews were then assisted by an engine crew from Company-20 and a rescue crew from Company-21 to complete overhaul of building-2, and later in the attic of building-1, where fire continued to vent from the roof after a vent cut was made. The truck crew remained on the scene assisting with overhaul and salvage until released by command.
