Fast acting neighbor’s ensured that all occupants were out of the house, after witnessing a branch fall onto power lines and spark off a significant house fire on this windy Saturday.

Thanks to their quick actions, and fast response time by first in fire crews, nobody was injured in this wind fueled fire.
Crews were able to quickly extinguish the flames before they spread to adjacent properties. Many thanks to @murraycityfire @sandy_fire_department and @unifiedpolicedepartment for their support.

Nights on the fire line are often a surreal experience. The beauty is undeniable, and flames mesmerizing, all with the stark contrast of destruction and danger.

Pictured here;
Firefighters off of Unified Fire’s Type 6 engine, E-6118, keep an eye on the fire line to ensure no stray embers float across the line.
It is fairly mellow work, until a spot fire breaks out and the crews have to hit it hard and fast to keep the fire from making a run.

Dangers include poison oak everywhere, fatigue, and the ever present danger of burnt-out snags collapsing as fire weakens them.

We are all feeling thankful for the fact that we’re safe and in good health, as we continue to work on the Elkhorn Fire west of Red Bluff, California.

Last night our Task Force laid 4,000’ of hose after midnight. All while several active fires gained momentum in the background.

Our thoughts are with everyone working to fight these incidents, especially those who have given everything in an effort to do so.

House fire today in @cottonwoodheights

Upon arrival, the garage and back deck were fully involved. Crews immediately took a defensive stance and fought the fire from a protected position. Once conditions improved, crews quickly searched the home for a report of two missing dogs. During the search the crews came across both dogs who unfortunately didn’t make it. Our heavy rescue crew attempted to revive both dogs with no such luck. To the family affected by your losses, our hearts are with you.

Pranks, jokes and gags - all in the name of fun! Whether it is to relieve the stress of the job or simply to break up a long shift, pranks and jokes are a time-honored tradition in the fire service and for a good and healthy reason.

Happy 29th birthday to one of our newest recruit graduates @madisonfivas 🎉

Ps. Never allow your crew members to know your birthday....exhibit A ⬆️
