Spring Street Structure Fire
This post marks the opening of a new category called “Emergency!” The category will contain photographic collections from various fire, EMS, and police scenes.
Breaking with the general format of this blog, entries in this category will most likely not contain histories about the surrounding area or organizations. Rather, a short entry will be made to introduce each photo collection and perhaps identify the organizations involved. All collections exhibited here are posted as a tribute to the fire, EMS and police personnel who respond to various emergencies in an attempt to alleviate suffering, preserve life, and protect property.
In this opening collection, personnel from West Platte Fire Protection District, Dearborn Area Fire Protection District, Southern Platte Fire Protection District, and Central Platte Fire Protection District, battle a residential structure fire in the early morning of September 18, 2010. All occupants of the structure were able to escape the structure safely and no rescue personnel were injured.
The family which resided in the home lost all of their personal possessions in the fire and a fund for donations to help them through this difficult time has been established. Contributions can be made through the Bank of Weston.
Further information concerning the fire can be obtained from the website The Chronicle’s report from Tuesday, September 21, 2010. The Chronicle is the publisher of the “Weston Chronicle” Newspaper in Weston, Missouri.
Photographs from this collection were published in both the web and print versions of The Chronicle’s report of the incident.
