Photo Story: Occupied Home Burns in Detroit

A passerby spotted a burning home in Detroit and helped the resident  to safety on July 29.

At 5:57 p.m. the Detroit Communications Center dispatched a box alarm to 2008 Lakeview for an occupied dwelling fire.

Chief 6 discovered smoke showing from a 1 1/2-story home and requested Engine 41 to lead out.

The crew from Engine 41 stretched two 1 1/2-inch hoselines while Ladder's aerial was placed to the roof.

Command requested a third engine for rapid intervention.

Units on scene: Engines 41, 51, 58, Ladder 31, Squad 6, Medic 12 and Battalion 6
