Chief 1 located a 20’ x 20’ brush fire in the wooded area behind Tareyton Park. Engine 3 arrived and pulled 400’ of 2” hose to the scene. Engine 2 made supply and connected to Engine 3. Approximately 1000 gallons of water were used, and the fire was knocked down. Overhaul then began, with smaller burnt trees being felled and cut up with chainsaws, and the ground being turned over. Utility 2 set up rehab next to the scene. NYS police were requested to respond, due to information the fire was deliberately set. The fire is currently under investigation by NYS police and State Fire Marshals. All CHFD units cleared and were back in service by 19:00.
