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

Detroit. MI, Box Alarm 10-29-10

At 01:30 while taking in the fire in Highland Park (previous post). We noticed a 2 story building burning on a side street. We returned to find fire taking hold of the attic. The Michigan State PD was on location investigating. At first a single engine was released from the fire around the corner and commenced a interior attack. After a short time the engine officer ordered the crew out of the building as the fire took hold of the attic. A while latter other companies arrived and helped bring this fire under control.
