Brush and Wood Pile Fire

 

Today around 1130, Co 27 was alerted for a brush fire in the 600 Block of Church Road (27-1 Box).  Engine Tanker, Brush and Chief 27 were out the door on dispatch and arrived to find a brush fire that had spread into large piles of cut timber.  Units deployed several lines to stop the fire from spreading more and to start cooling down the piles of wood on fire.  Tanker 4 as well as “Backhoe 27” were alerted to respond as additional resources. Units worked for over an hour with hot spots and used the backhoe to open up the piles of timber. Brush 4 and Tanker 4 assisted on the assignment. Thank you to Fayetteville E7-2 for covering “The Valley” while we were on the scene.
