GOSHEN, MA – Goshen firefighters returned to 164 Berkshire Trail West early Saturday afternoon to check on the property and extinguish a few hot spots that continued to smolder.
An access hole was cut into the “C” side of the house to gain access to one particular spot that was covered in debris. That allowed us to flood the area in firefighting foam in an effort to smother the pile.
Other areas of concern were treated the same way.
After returning to quarters, firefighters re-packed hose on the engines, started washing bunker gear, re-fueled generators and prepared our equipment for the next call. Oh, and we ate cold pizza which really hit the spot.
We constantly train with our neighboring departments for incidents like this. Reality dictates that our training will eventually be put to the test. That training, along with our training partners did not let us down.
