Last night Battalion 5 companies were dispatched to the 1400 Block of Hafton Woods Dr for a fire on the west side of town. On arrival companies found a single family residence with a working fire.
This is the 2nd fire in 1 week to occur within two miles of recently browned out E193 at a Columbus residences house.

On a report of a Fire in the City of Columbus 3 Engine Companies are sent. With E193 being OOS total miles traveled by the first 3 engine companies was 7.2, compared to what would of been 5.6 if E193 would of been in service.

Way to go fellas! Saves like these are made immensely more difficult or impossible when you don’t have the proper staffing. Safety for the public and the crews!
Very well stated. This happens to be a family/church friend that this happened to. She is still in critical/guarded condition.
I support my Franklin township firefighters every day of the year.
it's sad that dictator Dewin got rid of person voting in the spring so the levy forcing the Hollywood casino fell thru.
Over reliance happens all over Columbus every day, all day.
