HPZ1441/YouTube - We responded to a call for a house on fire on Louis near 2nd ave around 2300. We arrived to find a fully involved vacant house with partial collapse and fire through the roof. The dwelling has no exposures to the B side but is extremely close to the home on the D side. We laid in to establish a water supply knowing that we had a simi DECENT hydrant on the corner of 2nd, and several non working hydrants on this street. Our OIC decided on a defensive attack as there was no chance for survival inside the house and it was extremely close to the house next door. The pressure from our hydrant only allowed for use of our deck gun and 2 hand lines. Our ladder truck is out of service at this time. Our crew quickly set up a line in between the two homes and made entry to the vacant structure next door. We continued to monitor the interior of that dwelling through out this incident. We battled to get this fire under control for several hours but kept it contained to one dwelling. No injuries have been reported. At one point in this video you will see us shut down the hydrant so that we can re-position the engine. We generally pull past a dwelling with that much fire to avoid damage to our apparatus. Our OIC felt the need to re-position so that we had a better angle with our deck gun.
