Chapel Oaks Volunteer Fire Department


Monday, May 25, 2015  From all of us here at the Milton Fire Department please have a safe Memorial Day, and take time to remember the ones who gave all.....




Sunday, May 24, 2015  Around 12:08 an Engine crew was in route to Montandon for a parade when they came upon a pickup truck at the intersection of Ferry Lane and Mahoning Street with a fire in the bed of the truck. The Engine quickly stopped and used Two PW cans to extinguish the burning cardboard boxes in the bed. No damage was done to the truck just its cargo. Nothing like being in the right place at the right time. Apparently a cigarette was thrown out the window which landed in one of the boxes and started the fire.




Saturday, May 23, 2015  The 15 House was dispatched at 19:56 for a trailer on fire at Price’s Recycling just South of town. Chiefs 1501 and 1503 arrived to find a trailer and its tires along with various other items burning in the middle of the junkyard. Engine 15-2 arrived and stretched a leader line along with a high rise pack to attack the fire. A water supply was also established due to multiple oxygen and acetylene tanks in the immediate area of the fire. The crews from Engine and Rescue 15-1 assisted with overhaul. Units were available at 20:41.




Wednesday, May 20, 2015  At 13:02 Company 15 was dispatched to the 4600 Block of Rt. 405 South of the borough for a truck into a trailer. Company 15 units arrived to find a pickup truck that had left the roadway and struck a cargo trailer sitting along the road. The crew from Rescue 15-1 assisted EMS with the removal of the driver who suffered a medical emergency while driving. The driver of the truck had minor injuries.




Saturday, May 16, 2015  Saturday May 16, 2015 The Milton Fire Department took part in the Eric J. Williams race for justice held at the Milton High School track. Truck 15-1 along with Northumberland Fire Departments Truck 734 created an arch with the American flag for the participants the pass under as they made their way into the event. Co 15 also had 4 members form a team that competed in the event.




Tuesday, May 12, 2015  At 07:39 The 15 House was dispatched to the intersection of Garfield and Ferry Lane for a motorcycle accident. Chief 1501 arrived to find one bike down with the rider lying in the grass. Chief 1501 held the box to MICU 15 and placed the Rescue in service. The rider had a minor arm injury.




Monday, May 11, 2015  At 20:28 Company 15 was dispatched to the intersection of File Road and Paradise Road in Turbot Township for a four wheeler accident. Chief 1502 arrived to find a four wheeler on its side in the middle of the roadway. The rider with minor injuries was sitting along the road. The Chief held the box to Company 17 units to take care of the gas leaking from the four wheeler. Traffic 15 handled traffic control at File Road.




Sunday, May 10, 2015  As Truck 15-1 just returned from the Lewisburg call units were dispatched to Industrial Park Road and Rt. 147 for a reported two tractor trailer crash. Chiefs 1501 and 1503 arrived to find crash to be east of Rt. 147 on Industrial Park Road. The Chiefs found one tractor trailer in the middle of the road with its trailer broke in half with vehicle batteries on the roadway leaking. Rescue 15-1 and Engine 15-2 arrived and contained the acid spill to the area of the trailer. Due to the type and amount of cargo Northumberland County EMA was requested to the scene. Apparently the truck was parked all weekend leaking and had the batteries eating through the trailer floor. When the driver went to leave he pulled out from his parking area and that’s when the trailer broke. Once EMA arrived on the scene Company 15 was available.




Sunday, May 10, 2015  At 20:40 Truck 15-1 was dispatched to Lewisburg Hotel in the Borough of Lewisburg for a kitchen fire. The fire was in the range hood and was extinguished prior to the arrival of Truck 15-1. Once on scene the Truck stood by and was later placed in service by Command.




Saturday, May 9, 2015  As units returned from the smoke in a house call they were dispatched again at 20:10 for a mulch fire to the rear of the Milton Moose. Chiefs 1501 and 1503 arrived to find a pile of mulch in the middle of the parking lot on fire. Brush 15-1 arrived a short time later and had the fire extinguished.
