Raw video: Gary, Indiana church fire.

Video from Ed Malik of a fire around 10:00 last night at 2300 Adams in Gary, Indiana. Here's an excerpt from the description with the clip:

Crews quickly established water supplies and started an exterior attack using a deck gun, one stick on Truck 4 (Truck 7) and a couple of handlines. The response was kept at a still response with 2 engines, a truck, and Squad 2.

    Not sure why this is being called a church or a hospital, it was always apartments until the day it was vacated. It was probably kept to a still because it was only the attic and no exposures and there werent many more companies available. Coulda been a 1 engine-1 truck fire.

    The desendants of the carpenters who framed that roof can be proud.

    I'm sorry, did they say "quickly established water supplies"?  4 minutes of video, plus edits.  4 minutes might not be a big deal when it's exterior from the get-go, but 4 minutes with a crew inside could be lethal.  And remember, with an exterior operaton everyone was available to help get water- not so with an interior attack.  I think they need to thnk about what they consider "quick."

    I'm still waiting to see the "Incredible job by Gary FD" that the intro spoke of.  After viewing numerous videos of this department, I haven't been impressed by any of their work.
