Station 58 requested for Glen Rock Engine 59-1 to cover our wires and pole fire so that Engine 58-1 could head to the AFA. Engine 59-1 took control of the fire and was cleared from the scene while 58 cleared from a false alarm set of by a power serge.

Minutes after clearing the AFA station 58 was alerted for another wires and pole fire in the Boro. upon arrival Engine 58-1 found 2 wires making contact and sparking. Med Ed was requested to the scene to correct the issue.

Crews finally returned to the station to clean up from the original 61 fire box and to take a break.

About 40 mins into clean up station 58 was alerted for a CO leak in boro. Crews responded to the location and checked the home for any possible leaks, no leaks were detected. Crews then came across a faulty CO detector.
