2009 starting off HOT! CFD run #2 for 2009 is a huge structure fire! Photos, Video, & Audio here...

By Andrew Pollack on 01/04/2009 at 01:45 AM EST

I'd already mentioned in this previous post that our first run of 2009 was a structure fire on a really cold night. Well, shockingly, our SECOND run of the new year was also a structure fire. The weather wasn't as cold -- this time it was just below freezing -- but the fire was much, much larger.

I rolled up in our Ladder 7, and just our luck we were 20 seconds behind Falmouth's Tower truck. They ended up putting their stick in the air and running their master stream for hours, while we ended up "staging" off to the side in case another call came in or additional resources were needed. That did give me time to take a bunch of pictures. Other than taking these pictures, I didn't do much at this one other than move a couple of trucks around.

Most important -- nobody was hurt.

Here's a link to the WCSH-6 TV News story....

Here's the Second Signal recorded audio from the fire radios for the call....

Video shots -- also taken with my little digital camera. The last one is my favorite.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
