At 13:10 on Thursday 4th December we got a page to bring water to the Auxiliaries for a fire at the waste dump. The fire was in a very large mesh container full of paper and cardboard – irresistible for our local arsonists! TM52 with John H, Nev and Kim were first on scene followed by Roger and Robbo with 51. Refill water was needed from 52 only so 51 just stood by.
Nev and Kim went to Holt Road and refilled. Just as they had done so the Urban truck went flashing by on its way to another fire. So Nev took a good initiative and followed in case they again needed water. However, the householder had put the fire out himself. We all stood down by 14:40.
