The busy week continues for Barrybrick Fire-Rescue as companies from across the city battled a stubborn 2nd Alarm Fire at Irish Beach Box 3056. Engine 30 arrived at a 100x50 Class III Taxpayer Building to find heavy fire at the rear. A 10-75 was quickly transmitted with all-hands being put into service shortly after as fire spread throughout the building. After approximately 70 minutes and a special call for the Satellite Unit, Battalion 1 declared PWH and companies knocked down what was left of the blaze. The fire is currently being investigated by the BFI.

FDNY was on scene with several units and quickly knocked down the fire. Due to the fast response of the FDNY the fire could be contained to one third of the roof section and the surrounding buildings sustained only minor damage.
On April 1, 2018, Jakelands Bravest operated at a 2 Alarm house fire on Bulldog St in South Jakeland. Thankfully no one was injured at this incident and firefighters were able to prevent the flames from spreading to any exposure buildings. The cause of the fire was determined to be a classic car that caught fire in the attached garage that was running. For more information and pictures, visit the Jakeland FD site.
