Rescue 1 outside of Station 2

Rescue 1 outside of Station 2

If you follow our Facebook page you know that you can see things that are happening in town in real time, such as fire calls.

For example, this is what you would have seen yesterday:

The Orange Volunteer Fire Department had a busy day on Tuesday.

At 12:42 p.m. they were called to a home on Deer Run Lane for a fire in a home.

Soon after they left the scene at 1:29 p.m. they responded to a truck fire on Racebrook Road near Crowfoot.

They left the truck fire around 1:53 p.m.

At 9:25 p.m. they had a call at Springbrook Commons on Indian River Road for activated fire alarms in two units.

First Responders also reported that a burglar alarm also was going off.

As the final units were arriving, they received a call at 9:34 p.m. and some of the firefighters went from Springbrook to Route 34 near the Parkway overpass on a report of smoke coming from the engine compartment of a UNH shuttle bus.

Firefighters left Springbrook at 9:50 p.m., but at least one firefighter had to stay there on fire watch.

Shortly after 10 p.m. they left Route 34 and the UNH bus had to be towed away.
