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

 City of Groton fire responded to Rt 12 #255 the Elegant Nails Beauty Salon for a possible fire, while en route. Fire Alarm notified companies that they were receiving multiple calls. At that time it was upgraded to a Box Pulse.  C-21 was first due and reported fire showing from the building. During this time the incident was upgraded to an 1st Alarm. C-21 stretched a 2.5 on a two story commercial structure. Several M/A companies responded and added with overhaul and search of the building. The fire was confined to business what was involved. The fire is under investigation.
