Excavator Damaged in Afternoon Fire

Crews where called to a open lot behind Grassie & Sons Construction this afternoon for a reported excavator on fire. Knowing the size of the construction machinery kept at Grassie & Sons, command requested an additional Tanker out of Maplewood (Tanker 68). Crews arrived on scene and found a mini-excavator fully involved at 1066 Sheerer Road. Engine 29 handled the suppression duties while Tanker 29 stood by on scene with additional water, Tanker 68 was quickly returned to service.
