Just before 4 a.m. on Saturday morning, Avondale Fire Company was dispatched to the area of London Tract and New Peltier Roads in London Britain Township for a reported haybale fire.

Engine 23-2, Tanker 23, Ambulance 23-1, and Captain 23 made the response. Captain 23 arrived on scene first to find four rows of multiple haybales fully engulfed in flames in an open field. Due to the bales being so far off of the roadway, crews had to utilize a small driveway near the field to get good access to reach the bales.

Crews from Engine 23-2 pulled off a 200' of 2" 1/2 attack line with another 200' 1" 3/4 attack line hooked to it to create a hoseline long enough to reach around the bales from all sides. Tanker 23 assisted with providing a water supply to the engine due to lack of hydrants in the area.

Crews protected surrounding exposures around the bales and awaited the arrival of both the property manager and the Chester County Fire Marshall.

Avondale Fire Company would like to extend a thank you to Cochranville Fire Company (Sta. 27) for covering the Avondale local while crews were out at the fire and for helping to get our apparatus back in service.

Units: Ambulance 1, Engine 2, Tanker, Traffic, & Captain
Mutual Aid: Engine 27-2, Chester County Fire Marshall's Office
