RESCUE ENGINE EXTRICATES ONE FROM CAR VS. TOW TRUCK: SHERIFF ROAD AND 61ST AVE

Friday, December 19, 2014  Just before 10PM, the Rescue Engine, along with Chief 33A, responded to the area of Sheriff Rd and 61st Ave, a mere 200 feet from Station 38's front ramp, for an accident with entrapment. Engine Co 38 and Chief 38A found a two vehicle accident, a result of car involved in a rear end collision with a flatbed tow truck. The heavy steel components of the tow truck severely damaged the car's front end, leaving the driver pinned.

ENGINE 332 AND CHIEF 33A ON THE FIRE TASK FORCE: 1217 GLACIER AVE

Monday, December 1, 2014  Around noon, companies from the 3rd and 1st Battalions were dispatched for a reported dwelling fire.  Companies arrived with fire showing from the rear of a 2 story cape cod style dwelling.  Interior crews had a fire that was energized by electrical lines. As they knocked the majority of the fire, interior units were running out of air, so Command requested the Fire Task Force to relieve the crews.  This brought Chief 33A and Engine 332 to the scene.  Chief 33A was assigned to Division 1 and Engine 332 relieved crews operating on the 1st floor.  Once the electric was controlled by Pepco, Engine Co 33 was able to knock the rest of the fire down.  Chief 33A and Engine 332 remained on scene for approx. 45 minutes before being released by command.

THANKSGIVING NIGHT THIRD ALARM IN TEMPLE HILLS: 3103 GOOD HOPE AVE

Thursday, November 27, 2014  Lynnhill Condominiums, the 7 story high rise at 3103 Good Hope Ave, has been the site of numerous multiple alarm fires, so it was no surprise on Thanksgiving night when a report of an apartment on fire on the second floor quickly escalated into a three alarm incident. First alarm units were confronted with fire from the windows on the Alpha and Bravo sides, and "Collier's Mansion" conditions in the involved apartment. As they made their initial attack, a series of explosions rocked the unit, forcing companies to retreat to the relative safety of the hallways; meanwhile, the fire was autoexposing to the apartment above. It became apparent that the oxygen cylinders in the apartment were rupturing, and a direct attack was impractical, necessitating the application of water from the exterior to the original unit. Rescue Engine 33, en route to a transfer to Company 23 (dispatched as the first due engine on the initial alarm), was picked up on the third alarm, and directed to the fifth floor by the Vent Group in order to conduct the primary search. The crew forced entry into every unit on the fifth floor, finding only trapped smoke and dogs in several units. After clearing the smoke from the remaining floors, Rescue Engine 33 returned to service, and went back home for dinner. Kentland maintained a second crew (Engine 332) at the firehouse throughout the incident and the remainder of the night.

The Rescue Engine officer assessed the damaged vehicle, as crew members from Co 33 began stabilization, and found the driver to be trapped in the vehicle and pinned by the dashboard. Members utilized both sets of Holmatro tools to simultaneously remove both sides of the minivan before cutting off the roof. After performing a modified dash lift with the spreaders, the crew was able to remove the trapped driver to awaiting EMS units.
