9/20/12 Strip Mall Fire
This 2 alarm blaze took place in Midtown Jakeland
About this creation










At 2:00 AM, firefighters in midtown Jakeland were dispatched to 300 Commerce Way for a activated fire alarm. As the fire units were responding into the scene, a Jakeland Police Officer updated the fire units reporting that the cause for the alarm was in fact due to a structure fire. Battalion Chief Jeffries arrived and observed the "Spice Rack" fully involved in fire with a roof collapse. A second alarm was transmitted bringing in another two engines and one ladder. Firefighters fought the blaze from the exterior mostly using 2 tower ladders, 1 deck gun and 5 hoses. After the bulk of the flames were knocked down in the "Pets City", firefighters entered the store from the rear and extinguished the remaining pockets of fire. No one was inside the strip mall at the time of the fire and no firefighter was injured. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, however it does not seem to be suspicious. All units that operated at the scene were Engines 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 15, Tower Ladder 1, Truck 2, Ladder 3, Squad 10, Rescue 1 and Battalion 1. This fire quickly spread out of control prior to Jakelands Bravest arriving. Chief McNulty believes that if the Hackensack Ave firehouse was still open, which would have been less than two blocks away, this fire could have been brought under control quicker and the damage not as severe. Since the Hackensack Ave firehouse was closed in midtown Jakeland, 10 multi alarm fires have occurred.

Great Job Matt. Oh by the way if you need any rigs from portage assume they responded. Got a fractured wrist and it takes awhile to answer lol. Another fine incident from you though.
