First In

I welcome you to my blog site; I hope to show you the fire service in NLC in some interesting events. During the next few years, I will improve on the content and photos to keep you coming back for more. I take pride in my photography and try my best to be first in when possible. The majority of the photos will be from the Norwich companies & surrounding area departments, but sometimes I Buff out of state cities for a change of pace.

As of late I have missed or worked a lot of the incidents. I have a great support group of Photographers to help the site keep up with all the incidents. There are too many to list, So thanks for your support. Thanks for visiting and enjoy .RD Ladd

As of July 2017, my site has had 319000 hits thanks for viewing. If you keep coming I will keep posting. First time visitors for older post click on the month links right side.

Remember: I'm not able to make every major event, so if you get some photos or video and would like to share them, please contact me @

If your interested in viewing all of the incident photos or purchasing a photo That I have taken click here.

This site will work with mobile devices.

Montville (Mohegan District) W/F 08-14-10

Mohegan and Montville fire along with tribal FAST responded to 51 Park Ave Ext. for house fire. Water supply became a issue and Tankers were requested at that time Mohegan tribal was put to work and Subase FAST was requested to the scene. The home had several additions and void spaces which made extinguishing the fire difficult. The fire is under investigation.
