Truck and Engine Companies going to Work on a Commercial Structure in Stockton California

Here is another amazing video out of Stockton,CA. Crews arrived on scene to find smoke showing from a multi story commercial building. The crews had a difficult time accessing the building due to multiple layers of security, but were able to get in and make a good stop.
The video is by StocktonFireHistory and the description is below.

“On July 24th, 2017, Stockton Firefighters responded to reports of smoke and fire in the area of Fremont & Hunter. Fire crews arrived on scene to fire showing from the roof of a single-story addition, on the south-west side of the Bekin’s (Pacific Records Management) building.The Bekin’s building is a four story tower with arguably the largest fuel loading in the City of Stockton. It houses floor to ceiling storage of paperwork in banker’s boxes. The near 100 year old building is NFPA compliant, but only partially sprinklered (basement). Engine

 2 was en route to a ‘Code 2’ (non-emergency) medical call when the fire was dispatched. Engine 2 was within a few blocks of the fire and responds, requesting another unit for the non emergency call. Engine 2 switches to the ‘Tac Channel’ and gives a Conditions, Actions, Needs report. Truck 2 goes to work forcibly gaining entrance to the structure, and venting the roof. The Vent Group requests a line, and extinguishes most the of roof fire with a booster line supplied to them. Engine 2 and Engine 9 face a delayed fire attack, and request a 2nd alarm due to possible extension and heavy fuel loading. The fire was quickly knocked down once access was gained. Salvage and overhaul quickly took place to save as much of the valuable storage as possible. These videos are 

intended to provide information to the public so that they may better understand what firefighters do. This is not intended to serve as an ‘opinion battle ground’ for strategy and tactics. Comments that troll, sharp-shoot, or otherwise are meant to incite controversy will be deleted. We are proud to serve the citizens and City of Stockton, California.”
