The 2nd half of this 48 with Eng. 3's "A" Shift. Firefighter Silva is on a strict diet and a full regiment of exercises; he takes advantage of whatever time he has in between the large volume of calls at Station 3. A call comes in for an additional engine needed at a fire out in the west side of town. There's no hydrants out here. They are called off and head back to the station. On the way, they drive through one of Fresno's many homeless camps. They have overtaken the Downtown Fresno Area and it has become a very dangerous place full of drugs, prostitution and people that prey on others. Back at the station, the guys open up a box of goodies they ordered online. One of the locals drops by and serenades the guys. A call comes in and they are out the door. They arrive on-scene to a vehicle accident, but no one is hurt. Next up, they are dispatched to a vehicle fire. They arrive on scene to find a Hummer fully involved. It's then back to the station for a quick dinner, then an EMS call, a fire at the camp, and a bullet to the head. That's what it took to get the city to clean up the homeless camps downtown, but where did they go?
