Maselli Fireplace Center 3547 Whitney Avenue May 1, 1968
The quarried head of Sleeping Giant literally provides the backdrop for this photo. This early evening fire was not a big one, but it was a nasty one that did a lot of damage to merchandise stored in the basement of the Maselli Fireplace Center on the east side of Whitney Avenue, just north of West Woods Road.
Ladder 1 (designated "Truck 1" on July 1, 1974) is pictured here with Car 30, a white 1966 Ford station wagon that was assigned to the Deputy Chief shift commanders.
