This was a seemingly small but critical decision by E422B / E422 crew – cut down a tree and fencing to allow E422B fireside hydrant access and E422 to lay hose that ultimately provided water critical in saving the town-homes. Tiller 208, Truck 422, and Tower 424 eventually came through this point to operate their ladder pipes eventually stopping the fire from destroying the occupied town-homes.
