At 1911 hours on Saturday, December 26th, volunteers from Avondale Fire Company were dispatched for a reported haybale fire in the 200 block of Ellicott Road in New Garden Township. Crews arrived to find a large pile of stacked haybales burning out of control. Avondale's Chief 23 had Command at the scene. Due to the lack of a water supply near the scene, a tanker shuttle was established at Avondale Fire Company's firehouse. Chief 23 placed the fire under control at 2128 hours and the last of the crews cleared the scene at 0400 hours Sunday morning.
Avondale Fire Company would like to thank Kennett Fire Company, Po-Mar-Lin Fire Company, Longwood Fire Company, and West Grove Fire Company for their assistance at the scene.
Thank you Modena and Christiana Fire Companies for relocating to our station, ready to respond to any other emergency calls in our local.
