Turn Back The Clock pt. 33

Birmingham Fire & Rescue

Steve Wilson sent these amazing pictures from an apartment fire Birmingham Fire responded to in 1980. The fire occurred on the Northside, West of Carraway.

Thank you, Steve, for sharing these special pictures!

The Chief in the center of Steve's first picture is Chief Williams. He was a good man who I enjoyed running calls with back in the 80's. When I ran with him, he was Car 52, which was, generally speaking, South-Central Birmingham. We never left a scene without him walking around our unit to make sure everything was OK. If he found something, he would always tell us to get it checked after the run. It was obvious that he genuinely cared about us...
