Just before 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, Golden's Bridge FD was dispatched to Route 22, in the area of the I684 6A exit ramp, for a Brush Fire. Within minutes Car 2141, Car 2142, Engine 139 and Tanker 1 were responding. Car 2141 arrived on scene and reported he had a active fire. He requested that Engine 139 and Tanker 1 were to be the first due apparatus. Upon arrival, Engine 139 and Tanker 1 went right to work. Car 2141 then requested Engine 138 for deck gun operations and Utility 38 to better access the fire. The fire was about 100’ x 150’ in size. Units operated on scene for over a hour.
