Harlem-Roscoe Firefighters responded to a commercial fire on Hwy 251 on Aug. 15. A MABAS Box 12 was called for and would be upgraded to the 5th alarm before it was all over. Chief Don Shoevlin says, "Thank you to all fire departments and medical teams(16 in all) that assisted us in our fire. Everyone worked diligently and were tasked to the limit. HRFD relies on our part-time staffing, volunteers, and our neighbor's assistance on an incident of this size. It is a comforting feeling to know that we can depend on each other for professionalism, knowledge along with teamwork that we always receive. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to those members who responded. Because of their efforts and work, an excellent stop was achieved. We did experience a burn victim who was working in the building and airlifted to the hospital. I thank all the medical personnel who assisted with treatment."
