  1. Look like they had to use tanker trucks Jacob keppler

    • Yes, this area has no fire hydrants. It was a 5th alarm for tankers, a 5th alarm for suppression companies, and then 2 additional interdivisional alarms for tankers. By my count there were 20 tankers on the scene, along with 12 engine companies, 4 truck companies, and many Chiefs and other units.
