Responded to reports of a fire in a dwelling. Arrived to find heavy fire on the second floor and through the roof of a 2 family flat. Set up tower operations for our initial attack, knocking down the bulk of the fire. Once most of the roof had burned off or collapsed, we made entry to extinguish the remaining fire that we were unable to hit with our tower. No injuries reported. One family was unfortunately displaced. Photos where taken and can be viewed online by Steve Redick, and 313 fire photography. Video shot with firecam 1080 from Firevideo.net.
The under-equipped and under-staffed Highland Park Fire Department recently put in-service their new tower, 2001 vintage, that you see in the videos. Steve reports it is the first fire in Highland park for the rig.
