About this creation
Instead of posting in 3 separate creations, stay here and enjoy the rest of January's recorded incidents! Included are a dumpster fire, a crane rescue, and a high-rise fire.

First off we have a dumpster fire in Engine 1's first due with Engine 7 covering. Engine 7, Mini-Pumper 1, and Squad 1 responded.

The cause of the fire is unknown. Both FFs were uninjured and returned to service immediately.

--------------------------
Next, we have a rescue on a tower crane in the Downtown area. Truck 1, Rescue 1, and Squad 1 responded to find a man dangling off the boom of a 100' crane.

The cause of this incident was determined to be high winds. The man was blown off the wet crane boom and left dangling. He was later transported to North Lego Medical Center for evaluation. He was released soon after.

------------------------
The final incident was the first received by White Ridge Fire & Rescue in 2013. Box 817 was toned for a structure fire. A pile of wood was burning on the roof of a building at the intersection of Main and Oak Streets; a familiar location for White Ridge crews.

The cause was determined to be a group of teenagers who were holding a roof bonfire. Their fire quickly got out of control and the teens fled the scene. They were later apprehended by White Ridge Sheriff's Department.

**NOTES**
These incidents were ones I enjoyed making very much. Fairly simple setup and looks good, but most of all were fun to make. Remember that #3 is the most important. Have fun with builds and incidents! If you aren't, why do them?

Stay safe out there, Brothers!

Very cool James! I really like the pic from the roof of the Tower "in traffic," not many people take pics like that. Very clever with the plastic for the water streams, and the "dry chem." Very creative and well narrated!
