Fire Call, 11th of April, V58P1 and V58M1 Gorse Fire, Holming Beacon, Princetown

Currently we get little feed back from people reading the blog. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments please use the facility below.

At 15:38 on the 11th of April, Yelverton appliance was called to “make pumps four” at a grass fire at Holming Beacon on Dartmoor near Princetown. On arrival the appliance remained at a car park and M1 was used to transport personnel as near to the scene as possible. The incident went eventually to eight pumps before the crews, with the assistance of the commoners, were able to put the fire out using beaters, back packs of water and quad bikes with small water sprayers. sorry no photos we left the camera in the appliance.
