Industrial Fire in Caernarvon Berks

At 6:04pm, TVFD and mutual aid companies were dispatched to a building fire on Hemlock Road in Caernarvon Berks. Ladder 69 and Engine 69-1 were returning from another call and responded immediately. Responding units were advised of a call from the facility's security stating there was a fire in one of the plants, but did not know the extent. Chief 69 (Hornberger) arrived confirming a large industrial plant with smoke showing from a large bay door. TVFD crews entered the building and found an active fire in an electric motor, with extension to scrap materials contained to a holding pit. Deputy 69 (Brooks) established the command post and advised all incoming units to provide manpower and exhaust fans to assist with suppression and ventilation efforts. Due to the materials involved, fire crews were assisted by the facility safety team members in utilizing special extinguishers to contain the fire. Great teamwork from multiple agencies prevented a larger incident from occurring and kept the damage to a minimum with no threat to the local community.

Final units cleared at 7:36pm.

Thanks to all of the mutual aid companies that assisted on location and Engine 48-5 (Glenmoore FC) for covering the TVFD area, including handling a fire alarm while standing by.
