Engine 111 and Ladder Truck 114 responded to The Boulevard for a chimney fire, early evening on October 17th, 2015. Crews responding extinguished the seat of the fire, removing the burning material from the residential structure. Additional crews went to the space above and the roof to check for extension. No additional fire was found, the chimney was cleared of built up and the home was ventilated before returning.
Before 6PM October 18th, 2015 Newtown Hook and Ladder was requested to respond an engine and crew and Hawleyville Fire Department with a tanker to cover the Brookfield Fire Department station on Pocono Rd in Brookfield. Brookfield FD was operating out of town in New Milford at the scene of two barns burning. Once on standby in the BFD fire station the NHL crew was requested to move up to the scene to assist. Hook and Ladder operated two towns away in New Milford for approximately an hour before being released and returned to Newtown.
