Norwood Fire Company

Building Fire


Monday, September 29, 2014 During the mid afternoon the Engine Company was dispatched on Folsom's box alarm for a dwelling fire to the 500 Block of Perry Street.  Engine 2 quickly responded and arrived with Engine 18 and had smoke showing from the first floor of a twin home with fire reported in the basement. The Engine crew split up and hand jacked a supply line to a hydrant while part of the crew started a search for victims and basement access and the other part advanced the hand line to the basement and located the seat of the fire quickly extinguishing the fire.  Crews checked for extension and assisted with ventilation of the building.
