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.

Detroit MI, Box Alarm 11-01-11. 12843 Montville

Detroit Fire dispatched a Box for Montville and Buena Vista around 16:00.  We arrived as the engine was stretching, The truck head to the roof for ventilation. The officer from the truck informed the Chief that this was the third fire in a short distance and someone may be walking down the road and lighting vacant buildings. The fire was contained in a short time. This will was the last fire of our trip. We raced off to the airport to catch our ride home. This trip was slower then the past few years for the Devils night 3 day time line. The next few days the fire activity returned to normal.
