Call It A Hot Seat…..

March 26, 2011 – Elizabeth FD responded to 324 Martin Road in Union for a fire in a occupied 2½ story wood frame that would eventually go to three alarms. In this photo are the members of Elizabeth Ladder Co. 1 operating on the roof.


I wasn’t aware that this photo existed until now. This is myself and my partner quickly exiting a roof after we cut a nice vertical ventilation hole in it. We were providing mutual aid to a nearby town. I’m the one coping a squat while waiting for my partner to get down the ladder. I forgot about this fire for some reason but as soon as I saw the photo it all came back. Taking the lid off this fire produced massive flames that were over our heads. We did our job and got off as soon as we saw that.
