Christmas Day 2022 started off early for the Winnfield Fire Department when police dispatch notified fire personnel of a camper fire off of Patton St. Engine 1, Engine 3, Ladder 1, and Support 2 responded with 9 personnel. Command arrived on scene and advised of a fully involved camper trailer. Engine 1 deployed front bumper attack line for fire suppression.
Fire fighters were challenged with a hydrant at the intersection that was not in operation but were able to contain and extinguish the blaze with the tank water off of Engine 1. Fire fighters extinguished the fire and commenced overhaul procedures. There was light damage to another travel trailer next to it but luckily fire fighters were able to get a quick knock down on the fire. The owner was not home at the time and was given assistance to American Red Cross.
Great job to all personnel who showed up on a cold Christmas Day away from their families!
