Fire photographer Dave Traiforos provided some photos of a recent fire that took place in in southwest Detroit.
This was a box alarm response with initially two engines, one ladder, one squad, and one battalion chief. On arrival, given the fire conditions, the chief called for an extra engine for personnel and one for RIT. The fire in a two-story vacant was well involved on arrival and extended into the two exposure buildings–one occupied and one vacant.
These photos show early operations as companies arrived on the scene. The battalion chief coordinated an aggressive attack but had to take a defensive posture when fire overran the progress to safely stop the spread of fire in the exposure buildings.
