a guy bought this to burn it down and another house beside it to build a haunted house

Crews were dispatched to a reported still alarm at 7201 west 25th ave, while en route reports came in that the house “blew” On arrival a fully involved house was found and Battalion 8 immediately requested Lake Ridge with a tanker for water supply. Crews made an aggressive interior attack until they ran out of water. Lake Ridge arrived on scene shortly after to supply crews with much needed water. The fire was brought under control, one Firefighter suffered minor injuries.

On 9-27-09 GFD was toned out for a reported still alarm at 2626 Stephenson, on arrival crews reported a working fire in a garage and multiple semi trailers. Multiple lines were pulled from Gary Engine 12 and Lake Ridge. The fire was brought under control with no injuries and fire investigators were on scene working.

While returning from a trailer fire I heard GFD tone out for a reported car fire in the arear of 20th and Chase, a thick black header was visible from a mile away. Crews from Engine 4 put a quick knock on the fire and nobody was hurt. While they were working, a rubbernecker slammed head-on with another vehicle just down the street. GPD was on scene asap, it appeared there were no injuries at the crash.

Crews were dispatched to a reported trailer fire at 3650 West Ridge Rd Lot 8 in the early afternoon. It was quite evident there was a working fire due to the header. Crews were lucky to find a hydrant a couple blocks away, but the trailer was already fully involved on arrival. Multiple lines were stretched to contain the fire in two trailers. Two victims were transported, one with burns and a second with cardiac problems. Great job by the crews from 1st turn considering no hydrants near the scene and high winds. By rights the whole trailer park should have went…… Not with GFD Working!

GFD was dispatched to a reported still alarm in the area of Ridge and Whitcomb, on arrival Truck 13 advised of a working trailer fire. Due to the lack of hydrants in the trailer park Lake Ridge FD was requested. Crews initiated an interior attack until they ran out of water, when Lake Ridge arrived with their tanker the fire was brought under control. Nobody was hurt at the fire scene and investigators were on scene working.

On 9-27-09 GFD toned out for a reported box alarm in a junkyard just after 2pm, the header was visible from Porter County Indiana. Multiple lines were used along with aerial ladders to extinguish the fire after Firefighters gained entry to the property. Crews were on scene into the next day pouring thousands of gallons of water on the 200×200 100 foot tall pile of crushed car parts. Investigators reported the fire was due to spontaneous combustion. Mutual aid companies From Merrillville, Lake Ridge, and Portage assisted with Gary Station Coverage.
