    Boise Idaho Report

    Jan 11th
    -0830hrs - W/F - 8100 Ace St (West Boise) E6, 4, 202, T6, BC2 = Have a detached garage heavily involved.

    Jan 12th - W/F - 5000 Wylie Ln (Northwest) E9 rescues family of four from fire!!! E9, 2, 202, T1, BC1 = E9 arrived o/s w/ what appeared to be a detached garage fire behind a SFD. The building turned out to be a 2-bedroom SFD "granny flat" w/ heavy fire in attached garage. E9 (w/ T.I.) found a family of four still sleeping inside and removed all victims. S/C for EMS forthwith, WT221(due to poor w/s), BC2, and air unit.

    **Boise has numerous "Granny Flats" - these are SFD's located behind the primary SFD. In many cases they are either addressed the same as the primary residence or have no address at all. Many are garages that been converted into a residence and have to be accessed through alley ways.

    ***Thermal Imager info - Boise Fire has one T.I. on all engine Co's, Command units and Safety units. Ladder companies and the Rescue company carry two T.I.'s. This was made possible through an aggressive effort by Boise Fire Chiefs and line personnel as well as commitment from the City Council.

    On Thursday, January 16, 2003 at 1206 Hours (12:06 PM PST), seven Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters including a Brush Patrol Unit, and two LAFD Helicopters, as well as two Engine Companies and one Battalion Chief from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, all under the direction of LAFD 5th Battalion Commander John Miller, responded to a Greater Alarm Brush Fire at 8400 West Hollywood Boulevard in the Hollywood Hills. An LAFD Brush Patrol Unit staffed and deployed in the neighborhood as a result of both forecast and observed Very High Fire Danger conditions, was first to arrive on-scene. They reported vegetation ablaze in steep terrain, threatening two nearby homes and fanned by light winds. The local presence of this quick-attack unit and its ability to navigate narrow streets in an expeditious manner, allowed Firefighters to quickly anchor the flames while additional vehicles and firefighting personnel made their way to the scene. A pair of LAFD Helicopters served as Aerial Command Support and Reconnaissance as aggressive and well-coordinated efforts of the tellurian crews had the flames under control in less than 17 minutes. Thanks to Firefighters efforts, the flames were confined to one-eighth acre of vegetation. There were no injuries or structural damage from the blaze. The fire was caused by careless arc-welding during renovation of one of the nearby homes.

    This sight contains a lot of good fire pictures. For those of us do not understand what the term
    of greater fire means in LA. This shows some picture of them.
