On Saturday January 27, 2007 the Detroit Fire
Department responded to a Box Alarm for a fire
reported in a dwelling at Sheridan and Goethe.
Upon arrival of Ladder 10 heavy fire conditions
were found coming from a 2-story dwelling. A 2nd
truck above the box alarm assignment was
requested. The Detroit Fire Department brought
the fire under control using Engine 9/23/32
Ladders 10/6 Squad 3 and Chief 1.

This was 2.5 story row house with 6 units (2 occ
and 4 vacant). I was driving down the street and
spotted the header. Dialed 9-1-1 and gave then
basic cross street info and then grabbed the
camera. The first due engine and truck took the
front of the building but everything was
happening in the rear. The fire eventually hit
the loft and then spread both ways very rapidly.
