02/17/13 129 W, 1 I - + 3 - 2 It Was a Dark and Snowy Night

Engine 9 and Haz-Mat 2 are pictured at about 11:00 p.m. last night, toward the conclusion of a haz-mat call at 4433 Lead Mine Road. Occupant in a room at Candlewood Suites reportedly overcome by fumes. Upgraded from EMS call upon arrival of Engine 16. The hotel was evacuated while crews investigated, and tested the air quality. The occupant was transported, along with three firefighters. Units on scene included E16, E9, E6, L3, B5, B3, A1, HM2, C2, C4, a number of EMS units, D4, and T1. Command was terminated about 11:30 p.m. As for the photo, that's using a Canon 50D in Program AE mode. ISO 2500, f/4 lens. Partial metering, no flash. Tv 1/50, Av 4.5. Quite dark, despite the scene lighting. Click to  enlarge:

Any word on what the fumes were?

Interesting ….. No squad or Rescue on the assignment…

Looking at the balance of units, If I had to guess, the “box” was probably filled to reflect an “odor imvestigation in a building”; Squads and the Rescue are not on this response in the City.

Possibly a “KN” response type added to the initial engine with the Hazmat BC and others adding to the incident individually. A “KB” response would have landed two HM units, E8, and L5. CADlish!! Haha!!
