Kitchener (ON) fire dispatch toned out New Dundee fire for a small brush fire at 2022 Huron Road May 1 at 14:00. The initial report was a small brush fire the size of a back yard. It was a windy warm day so Baden Fire was requested knowing the fire would likely spread quickly. A New Dundee deputy chief arrived on scene reporting heavy smoke and a large field on fire with a turkey barn to the east as an exposure. New Hamburg was requested as the third station to assist in stopping the spread of the field fire. Pumpers were set up at the 2022 Huron Road and at 1918 Huron Road beside the turkey barn. Firefighters were able to stop the fire 100 feet from the barn. New Hamburg’s pumper drove through the next property to the east which was a gravel pit to get the north end of the field. Crews worked for over an hour to control the fire, then another half hour on a wood pile and large tree that were on fire near the origin of the blaze. The owner of the property was burning some wood and the high winds pushed the fire into the field. Box 690 provided rehab at the fire, the first of four we attended over the next six hours. Photos taken during mop up approximately half an hour into the call.
