Bessemer House Fire

Bessemer Fire & Rescue

Around Noon today, Bessemer Firefighters responded to a house fire in the 1200 blk of 13th Avenue, North. The call came in as a house that was well-involved.

Engine 5 arrived quickly after the dispatch, reported a house well-involved and told Engine 1 to bring in a line.

This house fire was particularly tough on firefighters because the temperature was near 100 with the heat-index over 100 degrees. While this house couldn't be saved, Bessemer made quick work of extinguishing the blaze and preventing the fire from spreading to near by exposures.

Great work, Bessemer!

BFRS House Fire

Birmingham Fire & Rescue

CAPT Mardis shares these shots of a house fire which occurred on Avenue Y just above Fair Park in the Battalion 1 district. Fast work by Birmingham firefighters prevented the loss from being much greater than it could have been.

Thank you, Captain Mardis, for sharing these great pictures!
