Windy Day Brush Fire

Last week, Washington Township Fire Companies were dispatched to East Valley Brook Road for the report of a brush fire. Fairmount Engine 2-1 was first to arrive and advised Long Valley Engine 1-2 to expedite to the seen. Due to the wind, the fire jumped to different locations in the woods and spread quickly. Both engines stretched crosslays to contain the fires before threatening a home nearby.  The fire was approximately 1.5 acres and the home was not affected by the fire. Crews left approximately one hour after the dispatch.
