Second blizzard photo posted by Statter911 of a Maryland National Guard five-ton truck being utilized as a hose wagon. It's equipped with 1000-feet of three-inch hose, a gated wye, and a 24-foot ladder. They're on scene at a two-alarm fire. Reports blogger and WUSA9 journalist Dave Statter, the Guard has been deployed at many mid-Atlantic region fire stations to help firefighters respond to calls. This photo was provided by the 1229th Transportation Company of the Maryland National Guard.

Dave Statter has been providing exceptionally good coverage of the impact of the snow on fire departments, including a number of fire station roof collapses. This morning, he found footage of a Delaware firehouse collapse, shot inside the station and after the apparatus were moved. There was also a destructive fire at Baltimore County Station 6, reported yesterday. We read the site daily, and it's a model of good reporting and good blogging.
