Harlem-Roscoe Firefighters responded to a large shed fire on Free Church Rd. The only problem was, the burning shed was in the middle of acres of piles, stacks and rows of recycled materials such as doors, windows, wrought iron, toilets, etc.Firefighters maneuvered their way through winding paths just to reach the fire. They then had to climb over, under, and around the piles of the recyclables to head off the fire before it reached another building.
One firefighter was injured when a tree limb above the fire fell. He was transported to the hospital and released. It seems the fire started when winds blew embers from a leaf burning pile into the shed. North Boone Fire also assisted on the scene.
