Woods Fire near Birch Run


In the midst of a Heat wave, Engine Tanker 27, Engine 27, Brush 27, and multiple sourrounding apparatus responded to the 1200 blk of Pine Grove Rd (Box 27-3) for a woods fire. Units arrived to find a 400×400 area of woods burning. Extensive overhaul was required because of the deeply seated fire burning. With temps in the 90’s crews rotates into rehab every 15 mins to ensure they were hydrated and cooled down along with vitals monitored. BVFD would like th thank all the responders for their hard work in very hot conditions. Once again a mention of ET14 – Irishtown FC for covering The Valley while our units were out.
