Afternoon Working Vehicle Fire

Today, May 15th, as crews were doing lawn care at Station 59, Box 59-7 was struck for a vehicle fire in the area of willow farm trailer park. Engine 59 responded with five personnel and tanker 59 with two. Chief 59-1 responded and advised of a working car fire with a visible column of smoke while responding. As chief 59-1 arrived, he told engine 59 to pull a CAF (compressed air foam) line off and attack the fire. Engine 59 arrived and attacked the fire; the fire was under control in about 3 minutes. Tanker 59 arrived and staged behind Engine 59 and sent the crew to assist the engine crew. As the crew was attacking the fire, liquids from the vehicle was leaking, oil, gas, etc the crew immediately set up damming systems to stop the run of the fluids. The crews were out for about an hour with overhaul and cleaning up the scene.
