This evening just before 6pm units from Progress and mutual aid companies were dispatched to a first due box assignment for a smoke reported in a house on Canby Street. Engine and Truck 32 arrived on Side Alpha with nothing showing and completed a 360 with nothing showing from the rear and Engine 32-1 picked up Engine 32’s supply line. Engine 30 arrived simultaneously from the opposite direction and laid a 2nd supply line which was picked up by Engine 33.
Units from Progress reported a smoke condition in the basement and found a small fire involving part of the HVAC System. Truck 32’s can man extinguished the fire once the power was secured and Engine 32’s attack line was not needed.
Command scaled the incident back to Company 32, Engine 30 and 33 at the 10 minute mark.

Why would they say a non injury accident when Brandon was clearly hurt
Oh Shelley. So sorry to see this. Sending prayers above-indeed some special angels watching over him. 💕
HE IS GOING TO BE OK 💙
Thomas Iwancio this is legit in our backyard
I would like to thank the EMS and Fire Co. for their assistance Monday. I would more importantly like to thank the civilians that stopped to help my son until paramedics arrived. If any of you are on this page or know of someone who stopped traffic and helped him, please reach out to me so I can thank you/them personally. He underwent surgery and has been released from the hospital. He spoke of his gratitude towards the kind civilians that stopped to help him and the compassion they gave. 💕
