Rural Fire Department Responds to Hay Fire and Mobile Home Fire

On August 5, 2016, the Bradley County Rural Fire Department was called out at 6:17 p.m. to Highay 278 W.  Mateo Gonzoles of 408 Bradley 32 was pulling a 16-foot utility trailer with 6 to 8 round bales of hay.  Friction from the tire rubbing the fender caused the hay to ignite.  When the first firefighter arrived the fire was so intense the driver could not disconnect the utility railer from the truck towing it.  The first firefighter was able to dawn his protective equipment and disconnect the trailer from the truck.  There was not much damage to the trailer and the owner salvaged much of the hay.  Around four thousand gallons of water was used to extinguish the fire.

On August 9, 2016 at 11:19, the Rural Fire Department was called out to 814B Highway 189B to a fire at a mobile home.  When the first unit arrived, the fire was exiting the front and rear windows near the middle of the mobile home.  An attack was made from the outside and knockdown was achieved from that position.  Firefighters then made entrance for salvage and overhaul.  Bradley County Rural Fire Department, the City of Warren Fire Department and County Line Fire Department responded to the fire.  The cause of the fire is undetermined but according to the report, no human factors contributed to the ignition.  The owner of the property is Haley Taylor.
