This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the
1st Responder newsroom.
Port Penn crews assisted with mop up at a brush fire after it was contained by Christiana firefighters
An excavator cleared a path in tall brush so firefighters could access the brush fire.
On Oct. 7th, Christiana Fire Co Engine 6 was dispatched to a small outside fire on the railroad tracks near 3415 Wrangle Hill Rd. The engine was advised of a brush fire in the parking lot along the railroad side of the building. Upon arrival the crews found a working brush fire and requested an additional engine and for train traffic to be stopped in that area. As extra crews from station 12 went en route a brush truck was requested Bringing 29-1 and the ARGO out of Port Penn Fire Co. Crews were able to contain the fire before the arrival of the field unit. The ARGO and brush truck assisted Christiana crews with mop up of the area. The fire burned about an acre of brush before it was contained. Multiple trees had to be cut down in the mop up process. Crews cleared the scene about 3 hours after the original call.
