Team effort and 8000 gallons water makes the save
Yesterday at 14:30 we were dispatched along with our automatic mutual aid from Belmont and Belfast to a residence on Peacock Hill In the Town of Angelica for multiple sheds on fire as well as a brush fire. Upon our arrival there was approximately 2 acres of brush and downed trees on fire as well as two sheds and a canopy containing lumber. One of the sheds was able to be extinguished and the contents saved. Firefighters were able to get around the leading edge of the brush fire and stop the spread. 8000 gallons of water was pumped through hundreds of feet of hose and Indian tanks as well as using fire rakes, blowers, and chainsaws to help put out the fire.
We had a great response from our neighboring districts and 17 members out of our own department that helped in the effort. Mutual aid was received from Belmont, Belfast, Friendship, MTS Ambulance, Belfast Ambulance and standbys from Short Tract and New Hudson. Thank you to everyone that responded and worked the scene!
