NO. 5 TRUCK, NO. 2 CHEMICAL
STATION POST NEAR FILLMORE
Lieutenant William F. Otto No. 5 Truck No. 2 Chemical, stated that on the morning of the 18th of April, after the quake no fire alarms were turned in as their system was entirely crippled and practically of no use whatsoever. It was impossible to obtain water from the hydrants situated on the corner of Golden Gate Ave. and Buchanan St., also at Webster and Golden Gate Ave., owing to the fact that the water mains in the neighborhood were all broken, therefore his crew worked entirely with their Chemical Engines.
