Monday afternoon, June 30th, around 1500 they were banging on the door at Engine 25 and OUC was in the process of dispatching the box for a house on fire directly behind their quarters on Brothers Place S.E.

Engine 25 arrived on the scene with heavy fire on the first floor which was extending to the 2nd floor and attic. DCFD companies did another professional and expeditious job as usual getting those lines in place and super truck work by trucks 16 and 7 bringing the fire under control within 30 minutes.

Dumpster Fires

June 29, 2014: Story By Vito Maggiolo

Two dumpster fires at the same time, once inside and one outdoors, kept DC firefighters busy in the noon hour on Sunday, June 29th.

The first call was for 1239 Vermont Avenue NW, where a box alarm assignment encountered a burning dumpster in the P-1 level of a 10 story commercial building. Sprinklers contained that blaze, but heavy smoke had to be ventilated from the structure.

While Vermont Avenue was being dealt with, a box alarm was sounded for smoke coming from 4303 Connecticut Avenue NW. Units on that call found a large industrial dumpster ablaze in the rear of the building, but far enough away to pose no real threat. An engine and truck were put to work extinguishing that fire.
