Rochester Fire Department busy this week

Jul 28, 2019

ROCHESTER — The town Fire Department and and EMS responded to a number of calls for medical emergencies and fire responses over the past several days. 

Earlier in the week, fire crews responded to a report of a barn fire. Within 20 minutes of the call, crews had arrived and made quick work knocking down a fire inside the wooden 20x30 barn. A tractor inside the barn was the cause of the blaze. Damage was minimized by a swift response and quick knockdown. 

On Saturday, July 27 EMS and fire crews handled several back to back medical emergencies and an ATV off-road crash in town. Several people were transported to area hospitals from these incidents.
