Still, it was sure good to see the lads on A shift getting it done.
It was only an outbuilding that may or may not have been occupied at one time.

As I was wearing only brush gear, I must admit - I got a little warm before it was through.

My friend Eric, a retired captain from another agency, once told me that we put up with a lot of BS for the few moments of joy that extinguishment brings. Overhaul is kind of like that.
The last time you readers saw Engine #2, she was at the fire truck store, getting outfitted. The crew at 2's seem to like her, she was a much needed replacement.
I am glad I was around for this, this is the stuff I really enjoy shooting. I saw a lot of friends, including two guys from my last crew. The best part was that I was home drinking a cold frosty before these guys got the hose picked up.
I lifted a glass to their honor. Strong work laddies.
Thanks for reading,
