WGFC Assists Cochranville on Field Fire
June 20, 2022

Windy and dry conditions contributed to a fast moving grass fire in Londonderry Township on Father's Day.

West Grove Fire Company was called to assist Station 27 Cochranville on a 4-5 acre fire on a large farm off Greenlawn Road. Sparks from a chainsaw apparently triggered the grassland fire that was moving quickly in breezy conditions toward the woods.

WGFC responded with Brush 22 from New London, Engine 22-3 from London Britain, and Tanker 22 from West Grove. All units had to drive about 3/4 of a mile off the road into a large field to access the fire. Tanker 22 was used to provide water for Brush 22, ATV 36 (Po-Mar-Lin of Unionville), ATV 27, and Brush 36.

Units were on scene for about 45 minutes.

Units: Brush 22, Engine 22-3, Tanker 22
Mutual Aid: ATV 27, Tanker 27, Engine 27-1, Brush 36, ATV 36
