Field Fire on Mills Rd

Thursday, July 19, 2018
The Memorial Fire Company was dispatched to a field fire today off of Mills Rd. Upon arrival 89-0 with Chief Jester as Command reported about 40 acres of cut barley on fire and spreading towards a house and to the marsh. Carlisle, South Bowers and Milton were responding to assist. Brush units from 89, 42, 57 and 85 worked their way around the field extinguishing it. Most of the brush units have ground sweeps on them for quick and effective attack. Engine 85-4 with Assist Fire Chief Johnny Hopkins used their engine that can pump and roll with a front bumper mounted fire monitor and joy stick in the cabin, surrounded the parimeter with a lot of water and extinguished all of the hot spots. All units were cleared in around an hour. Thanks to all mutual aid FD's for a great job quickly.
