On August 9 at 1024am Springfield Fire Company responded with mutual aid to assist Media Fire Company on a report structure fire. Chief 23 had several buildings with smoke in them from an underground transformer fire. Tower 44 with 6 members responded and assisted with checking the businesses and ventilating them. Crews were on scene for approximately 3 hours.
While on scene Bob Kelly from Fox 29 stopped and took time to thank all the firefighters. Bob is always upbeat and it was great to see him.
