Jakelands Bravest battled this All Hands job on Central Ave.
About this creation
Jakelands Bravest had just finished attending the City of Jakeland September 11th Memorial Service, when they were dispatched to 120 Central Ave for a reported working fire in an apartment. When Engine 6, Tower Ladder 2 and Rescue 1 arrived on scene, they found heavy smoke pushing out the front windows on the first floor of a 3 story apartment building. Firefighters quickly stretched a hose to attack the fire. Tower Ladder 2 sent their crew to the roof and vent the first and second floor windows. Rescue 1 started a primary search of the fire floor, as Tower Ladder 4 started a primary search on the second floor. Once Squad 3 arrived on scene, they were assigned as the FAST Team. Firefighters were able to quickly douse the flames and bring the fire under control. Once Engine 12 arrived on scene, they also stretched a hose to assist with fire suppression and overhaul. The cause of the fire was determined to be a dryer fire in a one bed room apartment on the first floor of the building. Luckily firefighters were able to get a handle on the fire quickly before flames spread to the floors above. No one was injured at this incident. All units that operated at this All Hands were Engines 6, 12, 13, 9, Tower Ladders 2, 4, Squad 3, Rescue 1, Battalion 2 and Deputy 3.
