Firefighters and flames

In a parking lot where vehicles are parked close to each other, a fire can spread quickly, resulting in several cars catching fire by the time firefighters arrive on scene. On May 9, the department practiced putting out one vehicle fire with the goal of preventing it from spreading it to a nearby car.

The Roseville Fire Department firefighters held a vehicle fire training session in the parking lot of the Rosedale Shopping Center the morning of Saturday, May 9.

The drill focused on practicing not only fire suppression, but also the effective deployment of the hose-line in protecting life and property in a tightly-packed parking ramp situation. (photos by Linda E. Andersen/Review)
