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

Highland Park MI Box Alarm 10-29-10

A box was transmitted for Detroit to a building fire on Oakman BLVD near Lincoln St. Crews found a small fire on the 2nd floor of a large commercial building, Detroit fire started to work the fire as the chief arrived. Finding the fire to be in Highland Park. They requested Highland Park FD to respond. Being a very active night the chief had his department return into the city.
As we took this fire in, we noticed a building fire about one mile away, with fire showing from the 2nd floor. Once these crews cleared up they responded the 2nd fire. Photos to follow. We only stayed at this fire for about two minutes.
