At approximately 6am on Wednesday August 1st Union Hill Volunteer Fire Department and Union Hill Volunteer Ambulance Corps were alerted to the report of a Barn Fire on Whitney Rd. in the Town of Ontario. Given the initial reports to 911, automatic mutual aid from Lincoln Fire Department and Ontario Fire Company was requested upon dispatch.
Lincoln Car 6-1 was the first to arrive and reported a vehicle on fire next to the barn. Thanks to the quick action of the property owner and the first few responders to reach the scene, the bulk of fire was subdued with extinguishers.
We are thankful for the quick response of our neighboring departments, and their continued commitment to teamwork.
