Do Not Think You Are Always Lucky！
Today, we were dispatch to extinguish a rubbish fire. When we arrive to the accident place, we find that is JUST a little BIT flame about 1 meter square, and we think that won’t cause any danger. I was wrong.
(Although I had been knowing that it’s always something special to make the rubbish burning because the trash wasn’t spontaneous combustion. We should take all gear (include SCBA) to treat with this accident. But I didn’t follow the standard because I looked down on the ant flame! And then we met a explosion.)
In the beginning, We took a 1.5″ hoseline to the fireground, then we turn on the nozzle and apply water stream to the flame, the fire grow up suddenly. our squad got a little back to the flame when see the sense, then a few seconds later it make a BIG BOOM!
This is a good and alarming case, and I want to share this case to all firefighters to recognize that must taking serious attitude to face to the rubbish fire.
