Joplin House Fire 11-15-2014
from Marty Dashiell
“iPhone video of house fire on Range Line Rd from a passerby (directly across from Big Lots.) Resident of the house stated to me that they were watching tv and smelled smoke, then heard a loud “pop”, and realized the house was on fire, exited the home safely and called 911. The Fire Department made a fast response and did a nice job getting the fire under control quickly. Marty Dashiell 913-709-0198 /Joplin resident.

Â Image below: Officer returning from 360 walk around. Notice the turbulent and violent smoke conditions occurring in the peak of the roof and the eaves. Dark thick black smoke indicates a deep seated fire.
Image below:First due company performs a transitional attack of the fire from the Alpa side. After what appears to be good knock down there is still heavy turbulant smoke pushing from the house. The smoke is pushing faster than you can run indicating there is active fire deep in the house.
Â 4:38 minutes into the fire and you can still see extreme violent smoke conditions not changing.
9 minutes into arrival firefighters appear to gain control of this fire. It appears the are still operating in a defensive mode. This could have easily been a Â LODD.
