A fire Sunday night in the southwest building of an apartment complex on Sandra Avenue in Mendota displaced 15 people as firefighters from Mendota, Mendota Troy Grove, La Salle, Sublette and Paw Paw battled the blaze.
The fire was raised to a Mutual Aid Box Alarm level 2 with Peru, Amboy and Utica covering the Mendota station. No injuries were reported in the fire that claimed the roof and most of the contents on the second floor of unit. Mendota Fire Department did not have a cause for the fire or an estimate of damage. Assistant fire chief Dean Ege said there may be some personal items that could be salvaged from the first floor of the unit, but most of the contents were lost.
Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says the firefighter, who has been identified as 28-year department veteran Stanley Wilson, radioed in shortly before 5:30 a.m. that he was trapped and lost, at which point his radio went dead. It’s believed he became trapped when one of the floors collapsed. Almost three hours later his body was recovered from the wreckage.
The body was draped in an American flag as it was removed from the wreckage. Firefighters lined the path from the wreckage and saluted as Wilson was carried into an ambulance to be taken to the medical examiner’s office.
Wilson, 51, is survived by his wife and two sons. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said Wilson was a 1980 graduate from Lake Highlands High School, a few miles away from the condo complex where he died.
At 11 a.m. Monday, Dallas Fire-Rescue Chief Louie Bright, III confirmed that 28-year veteran Stanley Wilson was found dead inside the rubble of the fire hours after a radio message was heard from the firefighter saying, “I’m trapped.”
“A longtime member with the department,” Bright said. “A hard worker, certainly a hero with us for all of his efforts today.”
At about 8:30 a.m., a gurney set up for the missing firefighter was moved and firefighters formed a line around the burnt out building. The firefighters saluted as Wilson’s body, draped with a United States flag, was carried to an ambulance.
In addition to pulling the boy from the rubble, firefighters were able to rescue five other people during the blaze, Evans said.
Two Dallas firefighters, both with leg injuries, were taken to a hospital and a resident was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.
The body of a Dallas firefighter who radioed for help after becoming trapped in a burning condominium has been recovered.
The firefighter, whose name has not yet been released, was among the 100 Dallas firefighters who responded to a six-alarm fire at the Hearthwood Condominiums at 12363 Abrams Road Monday morning.
When firefighters arrived shortly before 3 a.m., smoke was seen billowing through the roof of the complex. Dallas Fire-Rescue’s Jason Evans said firefighters initially started to attack the fire offensively, but moved to a defensive posture due to how fast the fire was growing.
At about 5 a.m., one of the firefighters radioed that he was trapped inside the building and that he wasn’t sure where he was. Evans said crews had not been able to reach the firefighter by radio since that message.
At about 9:15 a.m., the body of the firefighter was found. He was removed from the rubble, covered in an American flag and carried to an ambulance as dozens of firefighters and onlookers flanked either side, removed their helmets and saluted the procession.
Jason Evans with Dallas Fire-Rescue told NBC 5′s Kendra Lyn that the missing firefighter used his radio to say he was trapped inside and did not know where he was. Evans says crews have not been able to reach the firefighter by radio since that last message.
Evans also said the huge fire is keeping crews from searching the building for any injured or trapped residents inside the building.
At least 24 units in the complex are involved in the fire and embers from the flames have been reported landing on town homes behind the complex.
Dallas Fire-Rescue elevated the blaze to a six-alarm fire at 5:23 a.m. Monday, bringing in additional units to help battle the blaze. Ninety firefighters and 15 fire engines were at the scene as of 5:16 a.m.
Dallas firefighters are “still looking” for a comrade they believe is trapped inside a six-alarm blaze that has devoured a condominium complex at Abrams Road and LBJ Freeeway.
Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says the firefighter radio’d in that he was trapped and lost, at which point his radio went dead. He has not been heard from since. It’s believed he became trapped when one of the floors collapsed.
Evans says the call first came in at 2:52 this morning. Firefighters arrived to find an elderly woman trapped in a third-story unit. She was rescued, with a ladder truck, and treated at the scene by paramedics.
Thanks in part to gusty winds, it didn’t take long for the fire to spread: “It went to six at 5:22,” says Evans.
“It got defensive pretty fast,” says Evans, who adds that “at least 24 units in the complex are completely destroyed.”
It’s been a while since we’ve run something from our friend Paul Bassett (OLDIRONSIDESWAY)) in New Jersey. This time he does double duty with a helmet-cam rolling while he shoots pictures of the May 1 fire at 585 Hoboken Road in Carlstadt (Bergen County). The airhorns start sounding on this one at 4:43.
The blaze started in the basement of the three-story building at 585 Hoboken Road shortly after 8 a.m., fire officials said. The flames shot through the windows and up the exterior walls of the wood-frame structure, forcing smoke through the roof.
It took more than two hours for dozens of firefighters from Carlstadt and surrounding departments to bring the blaze under control. Assistant Chief Rob Popejoy of the Carlstadt Fire Department said the fire remained under investigation on Wednesday afternoon but did not appear suspicious. Peter Melchionne said authorities told him that the cause was likely electrical, and that the fire started in or near the laundry room.
It’s believed it started on a second or third floor balcony.
At its peak, about 60 firefighters were fighting the blaze that eventually destroyed one three-storey 36 suite apartment building.
Throughout the several hours fire crews fought the flames, gusting winds made the task difficult.
“Wind was probably our biggest enemy in this whole scenario,” Stony Plain Fire Chief Dan Badry said Thursday night. “It basically pushed the fire up the side of the wall and into the attic area.”
At the same time, firefighters had a difficult time reaching all parts of the burning building.
“They weren’t able to get into the east portion of the building, because of the heavy smoke that accumulated in that area,” Badry said. “But everybody on that side of the building has been evacuated, and made it out safely.”
Firefighters were called around 6:40 p.m. to a building in the 2700 block of Sisson Street in the Remington area. Fire officials said the building housed several automotive businesses, including a body shop and 22 apartments on an upper floor.
Fire officials said careless smoking caused the fire, which caused about $1.3 million in damage.
Meanwhile, dozens of people living in the 22 adjacent apartments were evacuated. Rosemary Fitzsimmons could only watch and wonder if her place would go up in flames.
Broadcastify.com audio via firefighterdispatch from a fire reported around 6:30 this morning on Linden Street in Boston, Massachusetts. There are two separate maydays on the audio. One at 9:50 and the other at 22:00. The pictures on this page are from the Boston Fire Department.
The Boston Fire Department says a house fire in the city’s Allston neighborhood has killed one person and injured 15 people, including six firefighters.
Steve MacDonald, a spokesman for the Fire Department, said the fire at the 2-1/2- story wood frame house was reported at about 6:30 a.m. Sunday.
He says none of the injuries to the firefighters or residents were life-threatening and all firefighters were treated and released. Some of the residents remained hospitalized late Sunday afternoon.
One firefighter fell through a second-story floor while another fell down the stairs, Boston Fire spokesman Steve MacDonald said.
One resident jumped from the upper floors while three others were taken down ladders. An BFD aerial tower was unable to reach the upper floors because of power lines, MacDonald said.
“It got so bad that the chief ordered everyone out of the building,” MacDonald said. “One resident told us someone was missing. We could not make entry. We knew there was a good possibility we would find someone inside.”
From Highland Park, Michigan Firefighter Scott Ziegler (HPZ1442) during a fire last Thursday. Here is what Scott wrote about the video:
We responded to a report of flames showing from the side and front windows of a liquor store on the 1st floor of a 4 story apt building. We arrived to find smoke and flames showing, and that the Police Dept had already evacuated the occupants of the building. The liquor store was sealed up pretty tight and it took us a few extra minutes to get into it. While we worked on that, PD informed us that they may have heard screams on the 2nd floor while they cleared the building but that it was to smokey to go check. # of us responded to the main entrance and to the second floor where we found smokey conditions and limited visibility. PD and one of our off duty FF’s informed of the apt number the woman was believed to live in. The manager had said she was unaccounted for. We masked up and advanced in to find her. She was found in her unit, and carried out by Firefighter Eason. We were then informed of another possible victim. We went back in to search for him but while searching his apt we were informed that he had already made it out. My camera died at this point because I cannot seem to remember to charge it! At this time fire had extended into the 2nd and 3rd floors. We advanced hose lines through the windows from units adjacent to those that were on fire. The fire was brought under control in a little more than an hour. We operated on scene for several more cleaning up hot spots. We contained the fire to damaging only the liquor store where it had originated, and 4 apt units. Used a firecam 1080 from firevideo.net any sound you hear cut out is not from the camera, I actually edit some of the content out of it.

“It’s tough, man,” said Steve Vanek, West’s mayor pro tem and volunteer fireman who survived the blast. “All these guys we’ve known all our lives. One of the firemen that died was a lifelong friend of my son. I’ve known him since he was born.”
Vanek also said Friday that the West Volunteer Fire Department lost three of its five fire engines in the blast, including a new $200,000 pumper. He said the department will rebuild, but in the meantime it will need help from its neighbors.
“You talk about family — I mean, it really is,” Vanek said.Case in point were longtime West volunteer firefighters Robert and Doug Snokhaus. Robert, 48, and Doug, 50, also worked at Central Texas Iron Works in Waco, where they were on the emergency response team.“

Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced Friday afternoon that the search and rescue operation has ended now that responders have found 14 bodies. At least 11 emergency responders are presumed dead after the massive explosion and blaze at the West Fertilizer Co. facility near Waco.
At an afternoon news conference, Perry called the damage in West “pretty stunning.” The fertilizer facility had at least 540,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate, Texas Health Department records show. That is 100 times more than what was used in the Oklahoma City bombing 18 years ago Friday.
Chris Barron, the executive director of the State Firemen’s & Fire Marshals’ Association of Texas, said his organization has calculated that 11 first responders died in West.
They are five West volunteer firefighters, a retired firefighter who assisted West, a Dallas Fire-Rescue captain who lived in the town and four emergency medical technicians, Barron said. He said some bodies recovered haven’t been identified yet.
Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Jason Reyes said the bodies were found “in the area” of the facility that exploded. He did not say how many were found at the explosion site and how many were recovered from surrounding buildings. Mayor Pro-tem Steve Vanek confirmed that five of West’s 33 firefighters, including the city secretary, died in the explosion
In light of the tragic event in West, Texas on Wednesday and in cooperation with local support efforts, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has established a national fund to accept monetary donations to assist the survivors and coworkers of the fire and EMS personnel who died in the line of duty.
Texas Department of Public Safety officials confirmed Friday the deaths of 12 people and injuries to about 200 more in the West explosion.
“It is with a heavy heart that I can confirm that 12 individuals have been recovered from the fertilizer plant explosion,” said DPS Sgt. Jason Reyes.
Reyes did not specify where, exactly, the bodies were found, or whether the victims were first responders. West Mayor Pro Tem Steve Vanek, a volunteer firefighter, confirmed West VFD lost five of its 33 members in blast.
Thursday evening authorities began removing the bodies of what are expected to be 12 firefighters from the smoldering crater that was West Fertilizer Co. and more bodies of residents in the complex, said longtime West Justice of the Peace David Pareya.
The removal of the dead began in the evening with a private ceremony out of view of the media or public where other firefighters lined up as the bodies were brought out, Pareya said.
We’re learning more about the firefighters who bravely responded to a massive fire at the West Fertilizer plant and lost their lives in the explosion. FOX4 has learned four victims have been identified as firefighters. One of them is from North Texas.
Perry Calvin worked as a volunteer firefighter from Frost in Navarro County. He worked alongside his father who’s the fire chief there.
Captain Kenny Harris was a member of Dallas Fire Rescue, Station 30. He was in West with his family and responded to the fire on his own.
It’s being reported there was an intense smell of ammonia before the fire and explosion.
West Volunteer Fire Department members quickly responded to alarms from the plant. They went inside to rescue the people right before the whole building blew up. A cause of the fire has yet to be determined. Dallas News | myFOXdfw.com
The names of the dead were becoming known in the town of 2,800, even if they hadn’t been officially released, as early as Thursday afternoon.
Believed to be among them is a small group of firefighters and other first responders who may have rushed toward the fire to fight it before the blast. At a church service at St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church on Thursday night, the mourning was already starting.
“We know everyone that was there first, in the beginning,” said Christina Rodarte, 46, who has lived in West for 27 years. “There’s no words for it. It is a small community, and everyone knows the first responders, because anytime there’s anything going on, the fire department is right there, all volunteer.”
One victim who Rodarte knew and whose name was released was Kenny Harris, a 52-year-old captain in the Dallas Fire Department who lived south of West. He was off duty at the time but responded to the fire to help, according to a statement from the city of Dallas.
We have been down all day and have been updating the West, Texas story via Facebook and Twitter. As far as we can tell, the only one of the 11 dead from fire and EMS who has been identified is Capt. Kenny Harris from Dallas Fire-Rescue. Capt. Harris lived in West.
A Dallas Fire-Rescue captain was confirmed dead in the West Fertilizer Co. explosion, read a statement released by Lt. Joel Lavender, a spokesman with the department Thursday afternoon.
Capt. Kenny Harris, who lives in West, served as a firefighter at Station 30 in Dallas. Harris was not a volunteer firefighter for West but responded when he heard news of the fire that broke out Wednesday night at the plant, the statement read. Harris, 52, was a father of three grown sons.
“Captain Harris rushed to the scene compelled to provide assistance to his community during this crisis,” said Mayor Mike Rawlings. “I want to express my deepest condolences to his family, friends and co-workers.”
The State Firemen’s and Fire Marshals’ Association of Texas said Thursday afternoon in addition to Capt. Harris, they have confirmed five West firefighter deaths, four EMS responder deaths, and one death of a responder from an unknown department. In addition, 11 West volunteer firefighters are in the hospital, according to the association.
The number of people dead following the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas last night is still unclear, with varying reports coming from different officials and news organizations. What is consistent in the reporting is that firefighters and paramedics are among the dead and unaccounted for.
A briefing at 8:30 local time again confirmed again there are missing firefighters. At the briefing it was also reported that a police officer/volunteer firefighter initially reported as missing as found this morning at a Waco hospital suffering serious injuries.
Update at 8:30 a.m. Thursday: Sgt W. Patrick Swanton, the Waco police spokesman handling media briefings in West, said at a press conference a little after 8:20 this morning that search and rescue teams are still looking for survivors.
That “is good news to me,” he said. That means authorities have “not gotten to the point of no return.”
Swanton did not update the number of those injured or killed, and he did not release names of any of the casualties. He repeated the earlier figure of five to 15 people killed but said that’s based on “very limited” information from “folks at the scene,” including local, state and federal officials.
One emergency worker who had been reported as missing, a constable serving as a volunteer firefighter, has been found hospitalized with “serious” injuries. Three or four first responders, among the first to fight the fire before the fertilizer plant exploded shortly before 8 p.m. Wednesday, remain missing, Swanton said.
Swanton also said a “small amount” of looting was reported overnight.
Rescuers continued working Thursday morning in West in spite of a cold rain after a long night of door-to-door searches for victims of a Wednesday night explosion that killed between 5 and 15 people and injured more than 100 more.
Six firefighters and two paramedics are confirmed dead and seven nursing home residents were missing after the blast according to West EMS Director Dr. George Smith, who said earlier Wednesday night as many as 60 or 70 people may have died in the blast at West Fertilizer.
One police officer who was reported missing was located Thursday morning at Waco hospital where he was being treated for several injuries.
Smith said early Thursday morning he expects more bodies will be found during the search of damaged and destroyed homes.
At 4:15 a.m., West, Texas EMS director Dr. George Smith confirmed that two paramedics lost their lives in Tuesday night’s explosion at West Fertilizer Company. He said six firefighters remained unaccounted for.
A major explosion occurred Wednesday night at a fertilizer plant in the city of West, near Hillsboro in north-central Texas – killing between five and 15 people and injuring at least 160 more.
Waco Police Spokesperson Sgt. William Patrick Swanton said a fire began Wednesday evening at the West Fertilizer plant. Fifty minutes later, an explosion was reported in a frantic radio call from the scene of the fire at the plant at 1471 Jerry Mashek Dr. just off Interstate 35.
At least five to 15 people were killed and more than 160 wounded when a large fertilizer plant explosion rocked a small Texas town late Wednesday, destroying dozens of homes under a cloud of toxic smoke, police said.
Between three and five firefighters were still missing, Waco, Texas, police Sgt. William Patrick Swanton told reporters early Thursday.
Firefighters, including local volunteers, were battling a blaze at the time of the blast, which caused a ground tremor equivalent to a magnitude-2.1 earthquake, the USGS said. In Amarillo, Texas, a seismograph recorded the blast with a magnitude of 2.5, Swanton said.
On April 15, 2013, just after 2:00 AM, firefighters arrived at 3390 West San Marino Street, to find fire coming from the attic of a three story U-shaped apartment building. An aggressive fire attack was made on this 100’ by 300’, 81 year old structure. Initial concerns of occupants at this early morning blaze were put at ease when it was confirmed to be a vacant building under renovation. A thorough search continued during the fire fight to ensure there were also no transients inside. This massive structure proved challenging with the attic fully involved in fire, compromised stairwells, and debris that spread fire throughout all floors.
Firefighters aggressively fought this blaze from the interior while additional companies provided vertical ventilation on the roof. After nearly an hour of intense flames, the remaining uncut sections of roof began to sag. Firefighters were immediately evacuated from the compromised roof, without incident.
LAFD fire companies, under the command of Assistant Chief Ralph Terrazas, had the bulk of the fire extinguished in 90 minutes. Companies remained on scene for several hours to perform a complete overhaul.
The Department of Building and Safety, “Red Tagged” the structure, deeming it unsafe for entry. The dollar loss is still being tabulated. The cause of this early morning fire remains under active investigation by the LAFD Arson Counter Terrorism Section, who is considering it suspicious in nature. The injured firefighter sustained minor, non life threatening injuries.
This is helmet-cam video from Justin Hastings of a fire reported just before 11:00 AM on April 10 at 1442 Yosemite Street in Seaside, California (Monterey County). A little girl was rescued by a neighbor (seen in the video in the arms of a police officer) and her mother was rescued through a window by the first arriving firefighters. Both were taken by helicopter to a hospital in San Jose. Three others were hurt in the fire.
Seaside Deputy Police Chief Louis Lumpkin said two other people were taken to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula for treatment of burns, and a fifth victim refused treatment at the scene. The fire broke out about 10:50 a.m. at the Del Monte Manor apartments.
Neighbor Alexis Hunter, who called herself a family friend, said she entered the burning apartment and found the child, whom she identified as 3-year-old Kaijah Collins, lying in a hallway just inside the front door. She scooped up the child in her arms and left the building.
The child’s mother, whom Hunter identified as 35-year-old Michelle Collins, was trapped in a second-floor bedroom, calling for help but refusing to exit through the upstairs window because she didn’t know where her daughter was, witnesses said.
Firefighters helped the woman out of the window and brought her down a ladder to safety.
“I saw the Mom just banging on the window and so I ran over there,” said Alexis Hunter, who lives in the complex.
Hunter said what came next was a burst of adrenaline.
“I touched the door knob to see is if it was hot,” said Hunter.
She looked inside and saw three-year-old Keasha laying on the ground, by now a maintenance man made his way up to the apartment and together they burst inside and pulled little Keasha out.
“I took her down the stairs and I kept talking to her, because I know the little girl since she was a baby, I was like Keasha, pay attention look at me, she was breathing,” said Hunter.
But Keasha was badly burned, and Keasha’s Mom was still inside. Hunter said people tried getting her out but the smoke was too thick, so they went around got a ladder and tried getting her out from the back window. That’s when first responders arrived and helped pull Keasha’s Mom out.
Hazleton Fire Department said most of the apartment building on East Chapel street was consumed by flames. Firefighters did what they could to save the place, but officials said that was impossible. Now investigators believe it was deliberately set.
It broke out around 6:30 a.m. Thursday in the 100 block of East Chapel Street, according to firefighters.
According to city officials, the building has been empty since September of last year.
Video from Deputy Chief Shawn Jones (DEPUTYCHIEFJONES) of the Hazleton Fire Department from a fire in an abandoned apartment building on East Chapel Street in Hazleton, Pennsylvania this morning. Thanks to Jonathan E Sonntag for alerting STATter911.com to the video.
”My son screamed the house is on fire. I thought it was our house. We had to leave the house, we were covered in smoke, you could see the flames from about a mile away down the street,” says a Hazleton resident.
This Hazleton resident was told to evacuate her home early Thursday morning after a condemned building nearby caught fire. She declined to go on camera, as she stood outside still in her pajamas. Her son, however, said he noticed the flames as he was getting ready for school.
The fire started here at this condemned apartment building along East Chapel Street in Hazleton around 6:30 Thursday morning. First responders captured video of the fierce flames that were shooting from the back side of the building.
A fire at Pleasure Bay Apartments on Atlantic Avenue destroyed two end-unit apartments Tuesday afternoon, police said.
A woman also suffered “very minor” injuries in the fire that tore through two apartments on the first and second floor of the building, said Director of Public Safety Jason Roebuck. The cause was under investigation.
This is one wild pre-arrival video taken Thursday in Luneville in Lorraine, France at an apartment building closed for renovations. The videographer captured five separate explosions (:10, :14, 1:34, 2:29, 2:34) from two different angles. Despite the misinformation provided with the video description, news reports indicate there were no serious injuries.
Three of the six gas cylinders stored there then exploded, projecting elements of the building onto the building next door and parallel, called Mars, however, just 30 meters away! A result which had the effect of causing a second accident burning fifteen m 2 of this roof.
Eighty firefighters on the scene
Upon arrival firefighters led by Lieutenant Caudal, the roof of the first building was fully ablaze. After verifying that all tenants had indeed left the scene, the efforts of 80 men rescue centers Luneville, Blainville-Damelevières, and Nancy Gerbéviller consisted of stop and prevent flame spread to other nearby apartment buildings. A real challenge in light wind gusts. September vans, two large scales, a command vehicle, six ambulances and a support unit completed the breathing device, a material point of view. Commander Sauvageot, head of the column, the colonel sign, site manager and regional director of the SDIS (Service county fire and rescue) Colonel Beaudoux have overseen operations.
