Structure Fire at Keystone Cement

 

On Saturday, April 24, 2010, -  At 22:00 hours, EAFD was dispatched for a structure fire.  Fire Chief 4651 went on scene at Keystone Cement and took command.  Fire Chief 4651 requested a full Tanker Task Force response.  Ladder 4621 arrived the scene and pulled a 1 3/4 attack line into the area of the fire.  Engine 4611 set up a draft operation out of a portable pond and fed Ladder 4621.  The main ladder was not put into operation.

The fire involved a coal elevator and the rubber belting of a coal conveyor.  The adjacent coal bunker was spared any significant involvement.  There was some equipment damage but no structural damage.  No plant personnel or firefighters were injured.
