Firefighters responded to this box alarm fire in a vacant dwelling in southwest Detroit’s 7th Battalion.
It was hard for companies to find the stairs leading to the second floor. A transitional attack was conducted to help darkened down the fire on the second floor from the exterior to allow interior companies to find the stairway and extinguish the fire.
