Walnut Street Fire Co. No. 4 was first-in at an arson fire that destroyed the Madison Elk’s Lodge, 524 West St., August 25, 2006. The Elk’s Lodge was fully involved upon arrival, and the old Madison City Hall to the south and a dentist\'s office to the north were beginning to ignite. Hand lines were immediately deployed to protect the exposures while the ladder pipe was set up to attack the main body of the fire. Three exposure buildings sustained damage and the Elk’s Lodge was gutted. The photo of Quint Four setting up the aerial was taken by the Madison Courier and sent over the AP wire, ultimately appearing in newspapers across the country including The New York Times.
