Tanker 49 Responds Mutual Aid To Mulch Fire In South Brunswick

During the early morning hours of Monday February 16th Tanker 49 was special requested to assist with a large mulch fire in South Brunswick.  One would think that it would not be possible to have a mulch fire with wind chills of -14 degrees and a temperature of 1 degree, but it’s possible.  Tanker 49 was on location for approximately 8 hours, braving the frigid temperatures with other fire companies.    Cranbury Tk 48, Millstone Tk 32-95, East Windsor Tk 42, Monroe Tk 23, Little Rocky Hill Tk 41, and a tanker from Griggstown.  In all approximately 318,000 gallons of water was used to put the fire out.
