At 12:28 this afternoon, all 4 Berlin Fire Companies were dispatched to a reported fire at a waste management facility located at 415 Christian Lane. Upon arrival, Car 12 confirmed a working fire in a pile of garbage approximately 100 X 150 feet in size and assumed command. As companies arrived on scene 4 master streams consisting of two deck guns and 2 ladder pipes began extinguishing the fire. 2 additional handlines were put into operation to attach the areas the other apparatus could not access. Once the fire was declared under control overhaul was started. After extensive overhaul crews began picking up and clearing the scene. Companies operated on scene for approximately 5 - 6 hours. There were no injuries.

Thank you to all units operating on scene and our mutual aid companies for providing town coverage.
