Newport Fire Department at work!

Post by RebStew on May 11th 2009, 8:45 am

By the time they got there the place was engulfed. It didn't help that the fire jumped to the house across the alley. I stood and watched it do it. From the angle the department was in they could not see it. The heat walked across the roofline under the gutter, of the northern house and it cought. They shot it with water and thought they got it. It had already made it into the roof. I could see a small hole from the west side of the house where it had made it through. After it went through the roof it didn't take long to loose the second house. They did a good job. I heard people griping about what they should be doing but I had a great view and I don't think any department could have done better. With the way these houses are sitting we are lucking we didn't loose a few more.

I heard them around 3am on the scanner but I didn't know what street it was actually on. So was that 10th or 8th street?

I was wondering where you were Steve. I was out there, just in the same alley on the opposite side of Isabella than you.

Someone told me you was over in the front. I walked around but never seen ya. You may have already left when I came around.
Here are a few more after the fire was out.

Next day.






People are asking how the fire jumped across the alley? If you have never been in a fire or up close to one you wouldn't understand. Enough heat and anything will catch. Look at the tail light on the SUV. That is heat from across the alley and past the house that cought on fire from the first one. It melted it. The old dry rotted box gutters didn't have a chance. I watch it walk across the box gutter like a lit fuse.
