"I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice."

 
Chief Edward F. Croker, FDNY
circa 1910



A-Shift Works Structure Fire On Yetter Rd.
Updated On: Oct 11, 2012

A-Shift responded to a reported structure fire on Yetter Rd. Thursday morning. First arriving apparatus reported that they had a concrete block structure with smoke and flames showing.

An agressive interior attack brought this room and contents under control within minutes. One room and all its contents were destroyed but the rest of the house only suffered moderate smoke damage. Overhaul lasted about an hour making sure no extension was present before handing the scene over to the Florida State Fire Marshalls Office.

Responding to the scene were three engines, a tanker, a rescue, Chief 1, and Chief 2. The exact cause has not been offically released.
