    Default Wow (pictures)

    My Lt. was showing me this last night and being a junior who hasnt had formal training, at first I said well I wouldnt go in there. And then he showed me more and we are saying to ourselves "why did they go in there?"

    http://phillyfirenews.com/pop_onscen...d=332&s=2&t=14

    FROM PHILLY FIRE NEWS:
    "Parkside Fire Company along with several other Delaware County Companies were dispatched to 11 Park Valley Rd for a dwelling Fire. Chief 45-9a arrived and reported heavy fire showing from a two story middle of the row dwelling. First arriving firefighters placed a hand line in service. During the interior attack several firefighters became trapped.

    The firefighters were rescued and removed from the house, two suffered serious burns. They were transported to a local burn center.
    Command requested the second alarm and evacuated the building. Placed master stream in service as fire extended to the exposure. "

    "why did they go in there?"
    Why would they not? There was a fire, that's the job of firefighters...to go put it out.

    Your right!!! You can't put it out from the outside. Surround and drown= Burn Down.

    Our first in officer makes the call. But our first in officer is IC untill higher ranking brass shows up.

    I don't Monday morning quarterback, but looking at the photos - the progress shows a well involved fire, blowing out the windows on two floors. Looks like they make a nice knockdown on it, and then it flares back at them.

    If the photos are shown in the order they were taken, photo 6 looks like a decent knockdown. Then obviously something happened...

    I'm with you, it looks like they made a hell of a stop for what they had. Looks like the saved the exposures.

    Did yall ever think that maybe this picture was taken after the S*** hit the fan? Maybe conditions that are showing in this photo were not the conditions upon arrival of the first companies.

    Yes, my photos didn't start until after the firefighters were already trapped inside.

    i feel its apparent that after they had it knocked down in photo 6 what they really did was push the fire into the rear of the structure. then it flashed on them.

    [QUOTE=JTFIRE80;851390]Ding Ding!!. 1st arriving officer had fire on the 1st floor only.

    If first arriving units had fire on the first floor only, the interior attack is obviously the way to go. Once the second floor get's going, I'd be a little nervous about the condition of the floor....brick does a great job of hiding the real condition of the building.

    Does look like a good stop, and whoever designed the firewalls in that building must of known what they where doing. Every townhouse I've seen has nice firewalls between units, with 15 cable and phone wires drilled through them.
