Climbing Drills at Ladder Co. 118 in Brooklyn Heights

Photo by MK Metz
 Ladder Co. 118 practiced their ladder climbs at the Brooklyn Heights firehouse over the weekend.

The drill followed the very real July 4 fire in DUMBO when firefighters from Ladder Co. 118 scaled a six-story loft building at 57 Jay St. to extinguish a fire reported on a lower floor.

You can see photos showing just how dizzyingly far the ladders extended at that fire here.
