Anniversary of Hopewell Woods Fire

By Fire Chief Jason Brooks
April 9, 2018

Today marks 6 years since the largest forest fire fight for Twin Valley members and one in Pennsylvania's recorded history. Sparked by a downed power line running though the Hopewell Furnace National Historic site off Route 345, the forest fire eventually burned 741 acres and took hundreds of firefighters two weeks to finally extinguish. Crews from across Pennsylvania and New Jersey joined together during long, stressful, and grueling shifts to contain and extinguish the flames, avoiding neither any serious injuries nor any structures to be destroyed. Lots of lessons were learned and built upon from the onscene firefighting efforts, up to and including the incident command structure involving multiple agencies. Every firefighter has personal memories of that day and the weeks to follow, especially when called to another brush or wildland fire now. From the members and officers of TVFD, thank you again to everyone involved in this incident and the overwhelming support of the community during that time.
