Company’s 1, 2 and 3 responded to a reported Structure Fire on West Street in our center Carver district.  On arrival, Command reported heavy fire to a shed, large area of brush and debris with a close exposure to a house.  Crews from Engine 1 and Rescue 1 attacked the Fire while Brush Breakers 26, 27 and a Mutual Aid Tanker from Plympton Fire supplied water.  Carver Engine 2 was diverted to a water supply fill site on Beaver Dam road to fill in bound Breakers.  Brush Breakers and a Mutual Aid Tanker were utilized for water supply, due to our Tanker 1 being out of service undergoing a refurbishment at M & R Auto Body in Whitman.  During the fire, company’s also responded to a Chimney Fire on Plymouth Street.  Car 2, Engine’s 3 and 4 and Breakers 28 and 29 responded, knocking down the fire before any extension was gained to the house.
