On Monday, November 21 Hook and Ladder Engine 1 and Ladder 114 responded to a report of a possible structure fire at 105 High Rock Rd in the Botsford fire district. Car 101 was first to arrive on scene and found heavy fire showing from the “B” and “D” sides on the second floor of a 1 1/2 story wood frame detached garage with occupied office space above. A 2 1/2″ hose line off of Botsford’s Engine 551 was used to darken down the fire from the exterior before an interior attack was made using an 1 3/4″ handline. Members from Ladder 114 ascended to the roof and performed vertical ventilation. Extensive overhaul was required due to a large amount of paperwork in the office. Hook and Ladder operated on scene for approx. 2 1/2 hours.
