Routine Car Fires – Any Such Thing?

Here are some car fire incidents to talk about with your crew.  Talk about your PPE, size-up, approach, and water supply.


Below is a picture of a car fire on I-287 in NY a few days back.  When the FD arrived the car was fully involved.  Little did they know, 2 potential bombs were in the trunk in the form of Acetylene tanks.  The tanks did not explode and no injuries occured.  Thanks to New Rochelle FD DC Doug Kelly and David Walsh for sharing.
