Engine to Circleville for Multi-Alarm Brush Fire

On April 21st at 1508 hours, MFD was dispatched under mutual aid for one engine to the fill site for a brush fire in Circleville on Shawangunk Road. As Engine 219 called out responding, their assignment was upgraded to respond to the scene with manpower. Engine 219 along with Car 10 (Mulvenna) filled the request and quickly got on the road. E-219’s crew went to work once on scene and spent the better part of several hours raking fire lines, cutting down trees, and hitting hot spots with several other mutual aid fire companies before being released and returning to service.
