Apartment Fire 2902 E. Fillmore

Alarm time aprox. 10:50. Ladder 11, Rescue 11, Engine 29, Squad 29 (heavy rescue), Battalion 2, and south deputy. Utility 29 was called but did not acknowledge till 11:10 (and was canceled) so Utility 10 was called around 10:59 and responded on scene at aprox 11:10. Also a CR van was called and an investigator.

The fire was on the second floor of an apartment complex. I had just turned on the scanner when I heard the call. I scrambled to get my shoes on, grabbed my camera and Garmin Nuvi 760 GPS. This is the second time I was able to use it to get to a fire and it saves me a lot of time.

I arrived on scene just behind south deputy at about 10:56. The fire was knocked down by then. I took a few pics and waited around till I heard they had fire control and all clear. 5 people were displaced. Police showed up at 11:05 and gave me a dirty look as I walked by them to leave. All clear was called at 11:10. Channel 3 news was on scene as well.

Nother Humat Valve!
