Last night at 6:27pm Essex Junction and Essex Fire Departments were dispatched to a stove fire on Densmore Drive. Crews arrived on scene quickly to find an active fire contained inside the oven. Crews dealt with the fire, removed the stove and ventilated smoke from the residence.
We often hear there are not a lot of Volunteers serving their local departments. Across the State that is the case for many communities. As this pictures shows our two departments can quickly fill a lawn. Still we are always looking for our next member and the County Course Rookie Course starts next month. If you live near one of our Departments, and want to join the Fire Service, apply today on either of our websites or stop by either Fire Department before Monday night's training and fill out an application.
