At 1440 hours Monday afternoon the Union Fire Company was dispatched for a brush fire on the 5400 block of Forge Rd in Lower Oxford Township. Brush 21 made the response as well as Engine 21-4. Brush 21 arrived to find an approximate 50'x50' area of vegetation on fire and began suppression activities. Engine 21-4 arrived and supplied water to Brush 21.

While operating on Forge Rd the company was dispatched to the 400 block of Spring Valley Rd in Upper Oxford Township for farm equipment on fire. The two locations are more than 13 minutes apart. Engine 21-2 and Brush 21 cleared the initial incident and redirected to Spring Valley road, while Engine 21-4 remained on the scene of the brush fire to assure that it was thoroughly extinguished. Engine 21-2 arrived on Spring Valley Rd to find a hay baler on fire approximately 300’ off the roadway. The crew deployed a 300’ attack hose line and proceeded to extinguish the fire. The fire was quickly contained and the company became available at approximately 1540 hrs.
