Mont Alto Barn Fire


Box 5-01 was struck for a barn fire w/ several calls received. Truck 17 arrived with a fully involved barn and several exposures, units from Co.5 & 7 laid supply line back the lane and began protecting exposures until a water supply was established. 2 dump tanks were set up at the end of the lane and an additional water supply set up at a near-by hydrant. The fire was brought under control within an hour and crews worked a little over 2 ½ hrs performing overhaul operations. Brian Denham Photo Gallery
