Fire At Bennett & Cohey Salvage
Shortly after 3pm, Church Hill, Chestertown and QAC EMS were dispatched to the Bennett and Cohey salvage yard on Church Hill Road for a report of a vehicle on fire. Engine 55 laid a supply line in from Church Hill Road and found a pickup truck on fire that had extended to nearby tires and expelled vehicle fluids. A tree was also involved. Two tankers were requested to supplement units on the call.
The engine crew stretched two handlines and the fire was knocked down. The assignment was held to Company 5 and Kent Company 6, with the balance being placed available. No injuries were reported and the damage was held to previously salvaged materials only. Engine 55, Brush 5, Special Unit 59 and Ambulance 5 operated for over an hour. Lieutenant Whitby had command.
