At 06:09 on Monday, 1/10/2022 the Bozrah Fire Department with mutual aid from Colchester, Yantic, Gardner Lake, Salem, Scotland, Laurel Hill and FASTs from Mohegan Tribe and Taftville were dispatched to 17 Schwartz Road, Hillandale Farms for a pay-loader fire inside of a building. Ladder 126 arrived at 06:23 and confirmed a pay-loader to be well involved inside of an approximate 600 foot long building. The crew from Ladder 126 stretched a 1.75” cross-lay and knocked the fire. Engine 126 provided support while their Tanker nursed the Ladder. All mutual aid staged in the lower parking lot and was returned shortly after since the fire did not extend to the structure. The Bozrah Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
