Burrillville, RI - Fire Alarm received calls for a fire at the RI DEM maintenance garage on the corner of Round Top Rd and Brook Rd around 0630 this morning. Firefighters from the Harrisville District were first due and requested a second alarm to be struck due to heavy fire conditions and also lack of water supply. A tanker task force was requested to the scene on this second alarm. Several big lines and a deck gun were used to knock the bulk of the fire down. Two Oakland-Mapleville engines set up on Brook Rd just down from the fire to supply the scene from a draft site while another engine set up a tanker fill site from further down stream. The building was constructed with heavy timber in a "U" shaped design. The structure was like a car port with a shed roof over it all. There were not any doors to the garage. Two dump trucks, a tractor used for roadside mowing, a medium size back hoe, and several pick up trucks were inside of this storage area at the time of the fire and were all completely destroyed.
