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 07-21-12

A Box Alarm was dispatched to a commercial building near Hammond & Ranspach . Units were reporting a active fire with access problems do to a electric fence 7000volts. The rear of the building looked as if it had a burned before and now scrappers were working on it. A section that looked to be a lean-too collapse was burning. Companies made a long stretch to bring the minor fire under control. This was our last fire of the trip for the city it was a quite 3 days. Soon after we left the city started to go back to a Detroit Normal.
