Just after lunch #yourFWFD responded to a report of a commercial structure fire just north of downtown. When crews arrived they found a large commercial building with smoke inside. They quickly made an assessment and were able to extinguish the fire in the area of origin and then worked to contain the run off. Hazmat crews were dispatched to monitor air and water quality and no need for evacuation of the area was determined. One worker was treated for smoke inhalation and investigators continue to search for cause.

Fort Worth Firefighters responded to an early morning residential structure fire in the 3500 block of Knox St. in southeast Fort Worth.
Upon their arrival, firefighters discovered heavy fire coming from the home. During a search of the residence, firefighters located a 73 year old male in the rear of the structure.
Firefighters began CPR on the patient upon his rescue from the home, using a Lucas mechanical CPR device. The man was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital where he later passed away. Autopsy results from the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office are pending.
Seven other people were displaced as a result of the fire, they’re receiving assistance from the American Red Cross.
Investigators from Fort Worth Fire Department Arson and Bomb Unit responded and have classified the fire as Arson.
The Fort Worth Fire Department will be unable to make any further comments nor answer any questions, as this is an ongoing criminal investigation. Photos c/o Glen E. Ellman/FWFD

A well trained fire department saves lives. Great job by all of those involved in the rescue, treatment and transport.

On July 5, 2020 at approximately 3:30pm Engine 4, Truck 1, and Squad 1 responded mutual aid with Greenwood VFD to the 2600 block of Old Brock Rd for a structure fire with a victim trapped. E-4 arrived on scene with smoke showing from the home. Lieutenant Eric Barksdale and Firefighter Louis Ramos were directed to a bedroom window by a Parker County Sheriff’s deputy, where the victim was likely located. Due to heavy smoke conditions, Barksdale entered the window with zero visibility in the bedroom. After a quick search of the room, Barksdale was able to locate and bring the trapped resident to Ramos and the deputy waiting at the window. Lifecare assumed patient care and transported the patient to a helicopter landing zone set up off Dean Rd. The rescued victim was flown to the hospital and is currently recovering. All arriving units continued to extinguish the fire and salvage property. Thank you to the Engine 4 crew of Lt. Barksdale, Engineer Ryan Whiteman, and FF Louis Ramos for putting the lives of our Parker County residents ahead of their own.

Temperatures inside of vehicles can quickly jump up over 30 degrees. This leaves children in an extremely vulnerable position. Please make sure to look before you lock and never leave children alone in a vehicle. If you see a child alone in a car call 911, attempt to open the doors and if you feel that the child’s life is in danger then carefully break the window furthest from the child.

Crews responded just after 1am to the 1400blk of Vanderbilt West. This is on the EastSide of Fort Worth off of Eastchase and 30. When crews arrived they found heavy fire involvement in a 2 story apartment building. Crews began an offensive attack but were forced out of the building due to heavy fire involvement and structural compromise. Command requested a 2nd alarm bringing the total number of units on scene to 12 with 48 firefighters and an additional 8 support units. The fire was placed under control within 45 minutes of our arrival. 12 units have major damage and multiple people/families have been affected. Red Cross is on scene assisting. No injuries have been reported and cause is under investigation.

There is currently a critical shortage of blood supplies. Please consider donating, the ice cream definitely makes it worth it!

Our most popular perk is back! All donors who give at a donor center in June will get a pint of Texas’s favorite dessert, Blue Bell Ice Cream. Ice cream and saving lives … now that’s a cool deal.

Our community is still in a severe blood shortage, so please come out and donate this week to help patients in our community.
