On January 6, 2012, approximately 2200 hours, Detroit Central Office stilled Engine 54 and Ladder 26 to Lahser and Fenkell to check for a dwelling fire. While en route to the location, E-54 and L-26 were alerted that Central would be dispatching the box alarm assignment (E-57 E-53 S-1 C-4) to the location on reports of a dwelling fire at Greydale and Keeler.
On arrival, E-54 reported a single family dwelling going throughout and stretched their bundle and a 2 1/2″ handline. L-26 assumed incident command until Chief 4 arrived. When E-57 arrived, they dumped their monitor on the dwelling fire. Companies made quick work of this blaze and were in service by 2315 hours.
