February 15, 2023

This afternoon, TVFD was alerted for a brush fire on the turnpike. Upon response, dispatch advised the fire was rapidly spreading up an embankment towards a large store. Brush 69-1 responded to the turnpike side of the incident, and Engine 69-5 responded to the back parking lot of the store. Both units arrived to find fast moving wind driven fire along the turnpike roadway and the north flank of the field. Chief 69 requested an additional engine and tanker, which brought Engine and Tanker 34 (Caernarvon Fire Co, Lancaster County). Crews split and worked fire lines and hose lines around the fire. In all, about an acre was involved. Please use caution when burning, or discarding smoking products. Between a mild winter and dry conditions, fire will spread rapidly through any brush, dry grass, or leaves.

Units: Engine 69-5, Brush 69-1
Mutual Aid: Lancaster County Engine 34-1, Tanker 34
