Large Compost Fire – Montello Street - July 4, 2009

4 Breakers, 3 Engines, 1 Tanker, 1 Rehab unit and 2 Command cars manned by 38 Firefighters spent the July 4th holiday afternoon fighting a fire in a 3 acre pile of mulch off of Montello Street. Drafting from static water sources utilizing deck guns, multiple hand lines, lots of Class A foam and a large excavator eventually enabled crews to get the best of the stubborn blaze after several hours. Plympton Fire helped out with a Brushbreaker at the scene and Plymouth Fire covered Station 1 with an Engine. (Photo’s by Firefighter Jeremy Farquharson)
