4th Alarm house fire in Wadsworth 4-30-13 (pt 2)

Scott Peterson was at Newport Township’s 4th Alarm fire on Monday in Wadsworth and has submitted many images which will incorporate several posts.

On Tuesday April 30,2013 the Newport FPD received calls of a fire @ 14541 Juniper Ct. Co’s arrived, found a very hvy volume of fire from the roof & interior of the home. The Zion ladder truck arrived and was immediately setup for water tower ops. Initially only one porta tank was available with most of the water going to the Zion truck. The alarm was quickly elevated from a the 2nd alarm on arrival to the 4th alarm. This brought numerous Eng’s & Tenders from MABAS Div 4 as well as MABAS Div 101 (Kenosha County WI). It appears Twin Lakes FD was the farthest Dept to respond. Eventually, 3 porta-tanks setup in series with a very successful continous flow of water with no loss. Considering the amount of fire conditions crews had on arrival and porta tanks and excellent job was done for knockdown.¬† You’ll see in one photo the complete collapse/failure of a large section of the 2nd flr thru the C division window above the back deck.
Pics of the fire today, with apparatus and more overall scene shots to follow.
