Just after 2:15 pm Wednesday, QFD was requested back to Frey’s Mulch in East Drumore Township to assist in extinguishing a burning mulch pile. Units were out at 4 am for a fire in the same pile, but as plant personnel worked through the pile later, they found a more deep seated fire. Crews used a handling and a Blitzfire to dump over 20,000 gallons of water. Engine 574 set up a draft site on Wesley Road to fill tankers from Robert Fulton, Bart Township and Union FC.
Thanks to the everyone who responded and to Christiana FC Tanker 52 for standing by for us. Special thanks to the 8+ members that did not make the run but helped get the rigs back in service.
