Company-22 was dispatched for a reported barn fire at 2390 Powells Valley Road in Wayne Township. Truck-22 responded first, followed by Tanker-22 and Engine-22. The truck went to the scene, the tanker was canceled while enroute, and the engine was re-directed to standby in Station-19 (Carsonville). The truck crew was given the assignment to bring hand tools and report to Command-19 at the front of the structure. The barn was fully involved and was burned to the ground upon arrival of Truck-22. The truck crew assisted in the extinguishment of several hot spots and then pulled large sections of the tin roof away to uncover hidden pockets of fire. Approximately 85 to 100 sheep that had occupied the barn perished and numerous remains needed extinguishment. After completion of overhaul and assisting Companies 19, 20, 216, and 29, Command released the truck crew from the scene and released the engine crew from standby. Upon return to quarters, Truck-22 was placed out of service due to problems with the throttle cable freezing up during this call.
