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.

East Great Plain, Truck Fire 06-22-12

 EGPFD and Mohegan responded to Rt-395 SB for a truck rollover with fire and entrapment around 14:20. As they responded it was reported that people were attempting to remove the driver. First due found the incident located in the grassy area near exit 80SB. The cab was fully involved and the driver was out of the truck. A quick knock-down was achieved but the fire extended into the storage area of the garbage truck. A torch was used to open the top of the truck to wet down the load. Do to the location of the incident the IC decided to have tankers shuttle water instead of closing the roads down.
