Three alarm fire on Hiawatha

[I originally posted this to vox.com on 10 Feb 2008.]

I was on Zone 7 and I assumed Medical Group Supervisor with ambulances 920R, 921R, 1621S, and Support 9. One building (8 residential units) will have to be demolished, and two other buildings were heavily damaged -- one of them all the way across Indian Lakes Boulevard. Winds were gusting to 30 mph.
