  • What's burned in Wisconsin

    Thought I'd "borrow" the idea from the IL threads. Post here any fires your dept had or ones you know of in your area.

    Green Bay had one last night, displacing 7 people. Crews were able to do an interior attack and limiting damage to $30,000. One FF was injured for burns to the hands.

        Brothers and sisters:
        This is a partial list for the first three weeks of February. Per the Bureau of Technical Services, this is a listing of fires that required three or more hand lines. Please, this is an unofficial reporting. I saw the thread and thought it would be a pertinent post.
        Stay safe, and stay low.

          After reviewing our reports, we have come to the conclusion that nothing flammable seems to exist in our area. However, the folks do seem to like crashing into each other on a regular basis.
          We do not rise to the occasion. We fall back to our level of training.

            Not much of anything, but had a nice car fire this morning. I really don't feel like it should be posted, but it is the first fire I've seen in months. Lately the other two shifts have been getting everything or it is the other side of town. It was nice to see some flames again and work a hose.

            Also Green Bay had a rescue on Saturday. I payload operator was moving rock from a pile when a good portion of the pile collapsed and pinned him into his payloader. It took about two hours to extricate him, due to potential for second collapse (gravel pile was about 4 stories high) and also could not get the loader free. A crane and some other tractors had to be used to finally pull it free. There was a point a heavy duty wrecker was dispatched to try to free the loader (dispatch was told to have the wrecker escorted by police to respond emergent). Anyway the loader was too much for the wrecker and the crane and other loaders finally freed enough to dig the operator out of the loader. Not sure of his condition, there was a concern for hypothermia and he got 10mg morphine.

              someone in the town of Superior burned part of their Sauna roof off last night. we have a really quiet department. our last calls were for a MVA with injuries and 2 reported grass fires. (one turned out to be a controlled burn, and the monitor was hiding behind a hayroll to get out of the wind.)

                From today:

                Fire destroys home on north side

                Four people were displaced in an overnight fire on the city's north side that caused an estimated $50,000 in damage, according to Milwaukee police.

                The blaze occurred just after midnight at 3011 N. 1st St., where Milwaukee firefighters reported flames on the first and second floor of the home.

                No one was injured.

                Milwaukee police said this morning the fire could have been caused by an electrical problem in the home.
                Firefighters battling apartment blaze

                Milwaukee firefighters are on the scene of a fire at an eight-unit apartment building on the city's northwest side.

                A kitchen fire in one of the units at 8524 N. Servite Drive was called in about 2:06 p.m.

                There is no further information available.

                            Brush pile fire

                            ya know when a fellow fire fighter has a good Bon Fire when your dept. gets paged out to his location for a large outside fire and then 3 min later you are told to 10-22 because the fire fighter on scene says its a controled burn. God I love this town! that is the only call we have had all month so far.

                              Structure fire in GB. 2 story house fire already venting upon arrival. Bread and butter fire. I was working a trade and this was the first one for me in awhile, so it was nice to get work again. It was also nice to be working on the truck for a change. (our pumps get more work than the truck)

                              Also there was another structure fire about a week ago. Basement fire, similar type structure. 7 people displaced no injuries. Can't think of any others off hand. We have had a few though, just didn't post them.
