Whiteface Volunteer Fire Dept. Responds To Chemical Treater Fire

Monday, January 23rd saw the Whiteface Volunteer Fire Department called out to a serious blaze on a chemical treater near CR 177. 3 units were activated around 8:55a and made their way to the location, meeting the Cochran County Sheriff’s Office and EMS. Upon arrival a treater was found to be blowing burning oil, and a company employee had isolated the pump. Fire teams assisted the pumper and checked for any fire extensions in the area, then all that was left was to simply wait until the fuel had burned itself out. In a Facebook post, the dept. says: “Quick and coordinated response from company and fire personnel turned a potential disaster into a routine call.” All units wrapped up and returned to the station by 11a.
