Harwinton, CT - On January 15th at 8:40 P.M., the tones sounded for the Harwinton Fire Department to respond to 126 Woodchuck Lane for a barn fire.
First to arrive was the Harwinton Ambulance (66-1), who reported a working fire. Harwinton Car 1 (Chief Bill Buys) arrived to take command and requested assistance from Nepaug and Burlington.
Harwinton Engine 2 arrived first, taking a position in the driveway to attack the fire. Engine 1 set up in the street for water supply, drawing water from two folding tanks. A quick tanker shuttle was set up, utilizing two tankers from Harwinton, two from Burlington and one from Nepaug. The fill site was about a mile away.
The barn was approximately 20'x40', and in between the house and road. Firefighters made the attack with three handlines and were successful in keeping the fire contained to the barn.
Harwinton EMS provided stand by and rehab services. The fire is under investigation.
