This is the scene when I arrived at the Fifth Alarm on 12-26-02, The candle factory complex was fully involved! The area of fire was Pitkin & Liberty Avenues to Glenmore and Shieffeld Aves.

Heavy fire vents through the roof and out the windows on the exposure # 2 side of the complex!

Looks like a fire storm!

The wall collapses on the exposure # 2 side of the fire building!

After the collapse!

Heavy fire out the exposure # 1 side of the fire building!

Tower Ladders operate on the exposue # 4 side of the fire building!

Fire is in this large concrete building with no windows on the exposure # 3 side of the complex, members were withdrawn and tower ladders went to work!
