Mulitple Fires Keep Volunteers Busy on Sunday



Penfield Volunteer Firefighters were kept busy on Sunday with multiple alarms including two structure related fires:


Just about noon firefighters were called to a home on Parkview Drive for the reported riding lawn mower on fire next to the house.  Penfield's Second Assistant Chief was first to arrive to report a fully involved lawn mower with extension to the rear of the home.  The Second Assistant Chief grabbed his personal fire extinguisher and a garden hose to keep the fire in check till the fire apparatus arrived.  Ladder Company 370 arrived shortly after and pulled a hose line to the rear of the house and put the remainder of the fire out.  Damage was contained to the rear of the structure with no extension to the inside.  The exact cause of that fire is still under investigation but it appears to possibly have been a mechanical failure of the lawn mower.



















6:15PM that evening the 5th call of the day would be the report of a garage fire on Helmsford Way.  Penfield's Second Assistant Chief was first to arrive and report a small pile of contents on fire inside the garage.  Crews from Engine Company 374 would make entry through a rear door on the garage and quickly knock down the fire while keeping damage to a minimum.  Crews said the conditions inside the garage were extremely hot  and smoky, minutes away from the entire garage bursting into flames.  The cause of the fire was improper disposal of rags soak in linseed oil.  Luckily the homeowner was home to discover the fire and call 911immediatly.
