Mississauga Third Alarm

DSC_9219

We had an abrupt start to Sunday morning after an explosion leveled part of a plaza in central Mississauga, leaving several people injured. We were called to provide fireground rehab as part of Mississauga's Canteen 101, which responded together with fellow volunteers from Brampton Fire's Rehab 201 unit. The resulting third alarm blaze burned throughout the afternoon through bouts of freezing rain. Later in the day, the Heavy Urban Search and Rescue Team from Toronto Fire was brought in to assist as well.

DSC_8336

A fifth-alarm blaze which tore through a west-end townhouse earlier this week sent one fire officer to hospital with critical injuries. A mayday transmission was called in over the air as one district chief suffered a critical injury during the firefight. He was taken to a nearby hospital and is now in stable condition. One dog was also rescued from the building.
