The Undisputable Truth

When I entered the fire service as a young man at the age of 15, I had no idea what the profession stood for...nor did I know where I would ever end up. As times have progressed, I have found myself needing to change with the times in order to adapt for the needs of training, education, and being a coach/mentor. We look at ourselves as professionals, and speak about being part of the best profession there is...which it most certainly is!In 1995, being part of the fire service meant the world to…See More

Uber Faster Than EMS?

A recent Jimmy Kimmel episode poking fun at EMS response times in New York City where Uber response time averages beat out EMS may not be so funny.  In an era where consumers can locate the nearest taxi, private car or rideshare from their mobile phone, it would seem that 9-1-1 is a bit behind.  Nationally, very few of us can see the locations of our apparatus and virtually nowhere can 9-1-1 callers learn the ETA of their assigned…See More

Video: Family dog rescued from massive house fire; home a total...


El Paso Fire crews were able to rescue a family's dog from a massive house fire in Northeast El Paso early this morning.

Crews were dispatched to a massive blaze in the 10800 block of Sapphire St. when neighbors saw the fire and immediately called 911 around 4:45 a.m. Sunday morning. When crews arrived on the scene, they found heavy smoke and fire coming from the roof of the house.

Responding Emergency crews determined that no one was home at the time of the fire except a dog that was rescued from inside the home.

The fire was brought under control by 5:33 a.m.. The home was fully engulfed in flames, but firefighters were able to protect the neighboring homes. The roof of the home collapsed in the fire and house is considered a total loss.

There were no injuries to residents or fire personnel. A total of 9 units and 24 personnel from the El Paso Fire Department responded to this incident. El Paso Police, Texas Gas Service, El Paso Electric, City of El Paso Planning & Inspections and the American Red Cross assisted in the incident.

Damages are estimated at $120,000.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The El Paso Fire Department would like to remind the public about their FREE Smoke Detector Program. In less than 30 seconds, a small flame can get completely out of control and begin filling a home with thick, black, poisonous smoke. In just a few minutes, a home can become completely engulfed with flames. With the advance notice of a working smoke alarm, residents can escape with their lives.

Residents who do not have a smoke detector who live within the city limits of El Paso, own their home and are willing to let the El Paso Fire Department make the installation, can request a FREE smoke detector by calling 485-5699.
