2nd Alarm Transmitted in Wakefield

     

Sunday, January 3, 2016 0240 Hours Around 0240 hours this morning both companies were alerted to box 3807 for a reported fire at 655 East 230 street. Within minutes both Engine 63 and Ladder 39 arrived to find numerous people attempting to flea the building via the fire escapes. Battalion 15 promptly transmitted the 10-75 as the truck made entry to the building and the engine began stretching the initial hand line. Ladder 39 under the command of Lieutenant Mitchell reported they had found heavy fire coming from apartment 3E on the 3rd floor with a heavy smoke condition in the hallway. A valiant attempt was made into the apartment however unsuccessful due to the amount of fire involvement near the front entrance. Engine 63 was able to quickly get the line in place and push fire back into the apartment before taking control of the public hall. The fire was knocked down and the inside truck team located a 10-45 code 2 and was able to drag the person out. CPR was quickly initiated however unsuccessful and he later succumbed to his injuries. A second alarm was transmitted due to the difficulty of getting occupants down off fire escapes because the drop ladders were wired in place. The outside team of both Ladder 39 and Ladder 51 used numerous portable ladders to bring multiple occupants to the ground. 2 hand lines were used to extinguish fire on the fire floor and some extension above. Battalion 15 had command and the fire was brought under control in 40 minutes.
