Today, The Engine and Rescue was dispatched to the 88-5 box in Middletown for a working structure fire. The Engine with a crew of eight and Rescue with six responded to 212 Dock Street in Royalton. As both apparatus was leaving to respond to the call, a thermal column could be seen from the station. Engine and Rescue arrived to find a trailer fully involved.
