    Default What's burned in Wisconsin

    Thought I'd "borrow" the idea from the IL threads. Post here any fires your dept had or ones you know of in your area.


    Green Bay had one last night, displacing 7 people. Crews were able to do an interior attack and limiting damage to $30,000. One FF was injured for burns to the hands.

    Brothers and sisters:
    This is a partial list for the first three weeks of February. Per the Bureau of Technical Services, this is a listing of fires that required three or more hand lines. Please, this is an unofficial reporting. I saw the thread and thought it would be a pertinent post.
    Stay safe, and stay low.

    After reviewing our reports, we have come to the conclusion that nothing flammable seems to exist in our area. However, the folks do seem to like crashing into each other on a regular basis.

    Not much of anything, but had a nice car fire this morning. I really don't feel like it should be posted, but it is the first fire I've seen in months. Lately the other two shifts have been getting everything or it is the other side of town. It was nice to see some flames again and work a hose.

    Also Green Bay had a rescue on Saturday. I payload operator was moving rock from a pile when a good portion of the pile collapsed and pinned him into his payloader. It took about two hours to extricate him, due to potential for second collapse (gravel pile was about 4 stories high) and also could not get the loader free. A crane and some other tractors had to be used to finally pull it free. There was a point a heavy duty wrecker was dispatched to try to free the loader (dispatch was told to have the wrecker escorted by police to respond emergent). Anyway the loader was too much for the wrecker and the crane and other loaders finally freed enough to dig the operator out of the loader. Not sure of his condition, there was a concern for hypothermia and he got 10mg morphine.

    someone in the town of Superior burned part of their Sauna roof off last night. we have a really quiet department. our last calls were for a MVA with injuries and 2 reported grass fires. (one turned out to be a controlled burn, and the monitor was hiding behind a hayroll to get out of the wind.)

    From today:

    Fire destroys home on north side

    Four people were displaced in an overnight fire on the city's north side that caused an estimated $50,000 in damage, according to Milwaukee police.

    The blaze occurred just after midnight at 3011 N. 1st St., where Milwaukee firefighters reported flames on the first and second floor of the home.

    No one was injured.

    Milwaukee police said this morning the fire could have been caused by an electrical problem in the home.
    Firefighters battling apartment blaze

    Milwaukee firefighters are on the scene of a fire at an eight-unit apartment building on the city's northwest side.

    A kitchen fire in one of the units at 8524 N. Servite Drive was called in about 2:06 p.m.

    There is no further information available.

    Default Brush pile fire

    ya know when a fellow fire fighter has a good Bon Fire when your dept. gets paged out to his location for a large outside fire and then 3 min later you are told to 10-22 because the fire fighter on scene says its a controled burn. God I love this town! that is the only call we have had all month so far.

    Structure fire in GB. 2 story house fire already venting upon arrival. Bread and butter fire. I was working a trade and this was the first one for me in awhile, so it was nice to get work again. It was also nice to be working on the truck for a change. (our pumps get more work than the truck)

    Also there was another structure fire about a week ago. Basement fire, similar type structure. 7 people displaced no injuries. Can't think of any others off hand. We have had a few though, just didn't post them.

    Large fire damages Arrow Concrete Inc. in Pittsfield
    By Corinthia McCoy
    cmccoy@greenbaypressgazette.com

    PITTSFIELD Area firefighters battled a structure fire late Monday that heavily damaged Arrow Concrete Inc., 5484 Glendale Ave.
    Firefighters were paged at 9:15 p.m. Monday to the blaze. The flames and smoke were visible in the night sky. The fire was so intense that "it looked like the sun was rising," said Paul Schommer, who lives nearby.
    The yellow and red glow of the fire was visible a half-mile away, according to Fred Schreiner of Howard. He got to the fire scene about 9:30 p.m. and it was fully engulfed. "I couldn't tell what building was on fire," he said.
    Fire crews tore down the building about 11:30 p.m. Monday.
    The Tri-County Fire Department from Pulaski was in charge of the fire scene and received assistance from at least eight other departments.
    The Green Bay-Brown County directory lists Allan Duchateau as the manager of Arrow, with 20 employees.

    Saw this on the news last night...about 200 FF's were on the scene.

    Default Fatal fire

    A man killed in a fire at his home Tuesday night was identified by Milwaukee police this morning as Keith T. Degner.

    Degner, 50, died when the exhaust of his wood burning stove became disconnected and the wood burner was somehow knocked over, said Capt. Timothy Burkee. The fatal fire happened at Degner's home at 3021 N. Pierce around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

    Degner's body was found in the basement where the wood burner was located. Burkee said the fire was ruled accidental.

    Green Bay had a nice burner yesterday. Old hose converted into a duplex, large amount of fire showing on arrival. Responding rigs could see the smoke after pulling out of the stations. Due to the roof design and several outcroppings it was difficult to extinguish all the fire.

    (I hope the pic and article show up from the GB Press Gazette)

    Last night we had a decent fire at our local Landfill. Called in Mutual Aid for tankers, 4 tankers system, all the lines off several of our engines, and then here comes the landfill crew to smother the entire thing with dirt. The neat part was when the fire hit the methane exhaust from the fill, I got there late, but they were saying 30 foot flames.

    got home last night at 3:00am, took a long time to clean and repack all the apparatus.

    Oh yeah, that was my first call too..!

    Hey HAZMAT? Why pull so many lines when puting it out with water is impossible.... We got our city crews there to put dirt over it and sprayed water while the cats turned it over, otherwise protect the Vents and Covers(a cool million $ on the tarps) and let it burn, protect the woods.. we had two engines 1 with 500 gal and 1 with 1000 gal with only 2 lines off.... nearest hydrant 3 miles away.... I guess in my mind it is more hazardous to fight it than whats its worth.... Think of the Sh** people throw away.... cover it and then let public works deal with it over time... congrats on the first call though.. atleast you got to put water on something...
