“Just before 11pm on Saturday night, we received a call for a “brush fire” on South Main St.
It was 50 degrees outside and pouring rain so those responding immediately knew it was something other than brush.
Engine 3 and Car 2 arrived to find multiple Vehicles burning in the Copart Auto Auction complex at 170 S. Main St. At the time of arrival Car 2 estimated 15-20 vehicles involved with an additional 100 threatened.
A response from Station 2 was requested bringing all available Freetown firefighters to the scene. Initial arriving crews were able to prevent further extension into the remaining vehicles with 2 hand lines while sufficient water supply was established to extinguish the remaining fire.
