Hammond Fire Department

This from Eric Haak:

Hammond, Indiana had a rather large commercial fire during the early morning hours of April 29th. The fire pretty much incinerated an old 2-story in the heart of downtown. I took the opportunity to get a few images of some of their rigs that were on scene once the sun came up and I thought I would share them here.

Hammond Fire Department news

Excerpts from the nwigazette.com:

April 24, 2017-Hammond firefighters responded to call after call last night with at least four structure fires included in the mix.  All of the fires occurred in the Robertsdale area. The calls included one house fire,  three garage fires and numerous trash can fires throughout the area. Battalion Chief Don Koerner confirmed that arson is suspected in all four blazes. Hammond Police have not yet issued a statement, but Chief Koerner confirmed that a person of interest is in custody. No one was injured in any of the fires, but one cat was burned to death in the garage fire on Lake Street.

The fire on Caroline was called in by a neighbor who saw flames shooting from the vacant house. On Lake, which is steps from the fire station, a neighbor told us that firefighters were refilling with water when they saw the flames shooting from the garage.

Here is what we have derived from the scanner at this point:

  • At approximately 4:25 a.m. Fire Fighters were called to 2009 Wespark for a garge fire.
  • At approximately 5:30 a.m. Fire Fighters were dispatched to the 1933 Caroline for a fire in a vacant house
  • At approximately 5:40 a.m. Fire Fighters were called to 2019 Stanton Avenue for a garage fire.
  • At approximately 6:02 a.m. Fire Fighters saw flames shooting from a garage at 2024 Lake Street.

NIPSCO crews could be seen in the area making repairs at multiple locations.
