KENDRICK PARK GRASS FIRE

Sheridan Fire-Rescue responded to a reported grass fire in Kendrick Park at 20:16 on July 18, 2021. Engine 2 and Brush 1 arrived on scene finding an approximately half acre fire burning in brush and trees on the hillside behind the Kendrick Mansion.

Command was established and Brush 1 crew initiated a direct attack to establish a perimeter around the head of the fire utilizing hose lines and tank water. Several trees were burning with fire extending into the canopy. Three dead trees were cut down to aid in containing the fire.

Brush 1 crew had the fire contained at 20:27 and proceeded to extinguish the remaining fire. Personnel remained on scene until 22:17 continuing to mop up and overhaul the fire area. The fuel load was a mixture of dead grass, pine needles, brush, and trees, so extensive overhaul was required to make certain the fire would not rekindle.

The fire is under investigation at this time. Bystanders in the park at the time of the fire said they heard the sound of fireworks and witnessed a juvenile run from the fire area. There were no reported injuries to bystanders or firefighters.

ATTENTION PUBLIC/TRAVELERS:  TRAFFIC CONES

If you encounter orange traffic cones placed in the roadway blocking one or both lanes, please do NOT drive through or around the cones unless directed by authorized personnel! We utilize these items to create safe work zones for our crews while they are operating on or near the roadway. There were several people that disregarded these cones Friday afternoon at Broadway and East 3rd Street while Police, Fire, and EMS were working a motor vehicle accident.

TCones

Sheridan Fire-Rescue personnel assigned to A-Shift take advantage of the nice weather on July 5, 2020. The crew performed evolutions focused on delivering high volume water flow utilizing the fixed deck gun nozzle on Engine 2 and the elevated master stream on Truck 1. These devices provide personnel the ability to deliver 1,000 gallons of water per minute to aid in fire suppression efforts when confronted with large amounts of fire or the ability to apply water to protect exposures (other buildings or vehicles) from becoming involved in fire. Practicing these skills is an important safety component for the limited staffing of Sheridan Fire-Rescue, along with protecting the lives and property of the community.
