I think this house is directly across 18th atreet on 8th avenue from Bessemer FD Sta. 1. Lotsa damage to be that close to the ststion!

Looks like it was probably pretty well involved on arrival...cut em some slack.

Good grief dude. What do you think they do? Sit in front of a house until it catches on fire? How about some credit for risking their lives to put it out?

I am the Original Poster and contrary to popular belief as stated by others I was not speaking badly of the Response Times of BFD Sta. 1 but rather wondering what incendiary material could have caused the fire to spread so quickly causing so much damage before arrival of BFD. I have worked many years in fire service and do not in any way give any disrespect for my fellow personell as was previously implied. So hold the phone! somebody got the wrong idea.

well the house looks to be real old so when they catch fire it doesn't take long at all for them to become fully involved. alot of the time house like that will become fully involved quicker than a Mobil home which is about 12 mins.
