Audio: 407 Hampshire 3-Alarm Fire

01/16/2022

Here's the bulk of Buffalo Fire radio traffic generated while the Buffalo Fire Department battled what turned out to be a 3-alarm fire. 

The call came in at 5:20 AM and there seemed to be a number of addresses given early in the incident, owing, possibly, to an apparent intersect of streets and fire swath to nearby structures.  But, the final worked was given as 407 Hampshire Street.

My audio assembly may include minor gaps or possibly duplicate tracks.  Sorry, but until I mop it up, it was early!  I didn't see anything on the feeds as of at least 45 minutes ago (Fire Buff New York actually got up the first mention of and video just as I was composing this entry), so I'm assuming everyone is resting off the Bills win last night!

(Mostly) Full Scanner Audio of Fire Ground Activity

Continued editing of this entry is in progress as more details emerge from actual recording playback.

Fire Buff New York made the trek and posted these video Tweets.

Leaving 2021 Burning

01/01/2022

This happened across the street from me yesterday (New Year's Eve).  I was at this very keyboard working on the blog launch when the call came through on the scanner.  

I'm always in "response" mode for local public safety incidents, so long as such incidents are relatively close.  Being across the street, this event qualified.  I made it to the scene before the full battalion even arrived.

These clips were broadcast or shared to the BuffaloScan Twitter feed, but I also did a live video via Twitter on said feed which provides an additional angle, and some incredible water works shots as fires make quick work of putting out the blaze. 

This WGRZ news report echos what I already knew from the Buffalo Fire Department's standard verbal summary over fire radio -- something they give to the dispatcher just after they've put out the fire and are about to leave the scene.  The fire was apparenlty arson.
