With much excitement today, we took delivery of our new fire engine from Rosenbauer Group and Emergency Vehicles Plus! We are thankful for the hard work and careful consideration given to this purchase by City Council. This critical purchase enhances our aging fleet and enables us to continue to provide a high level of service to the community.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will train and prepare the new unit for service. You may occasionally see the new engine on the streets while we prepare it for emergencies. This critical step assures our staff is ready when the engine is fully in service.

All too often, firefighters deal with moments of trauma and tragedy. But today, Muskegon Heights Firefighters were able to help deliver a little bit of happiness to the owner of this dog.

After falling approximately 20 feet onto an iced-over containment area in the old wastewater treatment, escape without technical assistance was not possible. Lieutenant John Kriger climbed down to reach the stranded canine and carried him safely. Following the rescue, the dog was checked out by Pound Buddies.

At approximately 11:55 AM, Muskegon Fire Department and Muskegon Heights Fire Dept responded to a reported house fire on the border of our two cities just inside Muskegon Heights. Initial reports were of a person trapped in the home on the second floor.

Upon arrival, Muskegon Firefighters observed smoke and flames from the second floor of the home. Immedately Muskegon Professional Firefighters - IAFF Local 370 Firefighters began conducting an aggressive interior fire attack and search for victims. Within minutes Muskegon Heights Firefighters joined the crew from Muskegon City. Firefighters located the 58-year-old male fire victim and stopped the fire from spreading in less than 10 minutes.

The victim was found in his bedroom, where the fire originated. Individuals close to the victim told investigators that he was a heavy smoker. The victim's name is being withheld to give the family opportunity to notify additional family and autopsy findings.

A team of investigators from Muskegon Heights Fire Dept, Muskegon Heights Police Department, Muskegon Fire Department, Muskegon Police Department and the Michigan State Police is conducting the fire investigation.

Initial indications point to the fire being accidental.

Prayers for his family.

Prayers to this gentleman’s family as well as 1st responders.

Our deepest condolences go out to the departments and families of the two Michigan firefighters who died in the line of duty recently.

A village of Paw Paw Fire Department firefighter died three days ago after coming in contact with a power line. Today a City of Flint Fire Department firefighter died in the line of duty following a structure fire.

Sadly two Michigan firefighters within four days who have died serving their communities. Please keep both communities in your thoughts and prayers.

So incredibly sad! πŸ˜” Prayers for these families. Lisa Wilks Wright this takes me back to January 1986 when our dads were fighting the Vandervelde’s fire on Broadway. Your dad and three other firemen were almost killed in that blaze. 😬 Not sure if you remember. Very very scary but our dads loved their jobs. Miss them both!

Prayers for both families for their loss. Thank you for your service. πŸ™πŸ»

Put a perspective on the job firefighters do. God bless you all and prayers for comfort and peace to the families.
