Congrats on the new ride, looks very impressive!

I am so excited for the Muskegon Heights Community!! Is the Rhino being retired ?

So glad for Heights Fire receiving a new truck with modern technology! Be safe on the job and save lives! Now for the City of Muskegon Heights to fix Broadway so the new truck does not have to slow down responding to calls!

I'm thrilled for all of you. My dad, Ed Kwolek, was a Fireman for 36 years. He retired as Captain in the mid-'70s. I still consider all Firemen my family. I wanted to share some old pictures from the old Fire Barn with you, but the option isn't available here. You all deserve the BEST always!

That's awesome! Congratulations! You all deserve the best equipment so you can be safe and protect your community!!

Looks very nice. Much needed for our citizens and firefighters.

Is it the new electric model?

Nice!! What kind is it?

Awesome you guys deserve great equipment.

Great news and Great job, Captain Christopher Dean !!!! Keep up the good work, old friend!!!

Woot woot!!! I am SO glad to see a nice new truck for all of you to use. I know as well as anyone how badly it was needed.

City of Muskegon Heights needs this. Great news. My grandfather was fire chief back in the day.

At approximately today 9:45AM Muskegon Heights Fire Department responded to a reported commerical fire in an apartment building. Initial callers reported occupants still in the building. First arriving Muskegon Heights Fire Dept units found heavy fire from the second floor apartment and requested assistance from Muskegon Fire Department.

As the first fire crew arrived, Police Chief Maurice (Mo) Sain who was already in the area was evacuating first floor occupants. This selfless action by Police Chief Sain allowed fire crew to focus on the the second floor fire and possible occupants on the second floor.

Crews from Muskeogn Heights and Muskegon worked feverishly to search for occupants while extinguishing the fire. Limited on scene resources required additional assistance from Norton Shores Fire Department and Muskegon Charter Township Fire Department.

It took over an hour to bring the fire under control. Second floor occupants were safely accounted for during fire suppression.

The fire cause is currently undetermined and we will be working to determine the cause of the fire. Red Cross has been contacted to assist the occupants with shelter and clothing.
