Mishey Road Barn/Silo Fire



CH411, E413, E419, R415, T417, G412, G414 were dispatched on Monday at 4:15 pm to the 19000 block of Mishey Road in Pike Township on a reported barn and silo fire.

Due to non-hydranted area and size of the structure involved, additional tankers were dispatched from Jefferson Twp (Richland Co), Worthington Twp (Richland Co), Loudonville (Ashland Co), and Monroe Twp.

Smoke could be seen from several miles out. Chief 411 found a roughly 60×80 barn that was on the ground and burning. The first arriving engine (E413) stretched two, 1 ¾ attack lines and began suppression. A portable tank was setup for tankers to dump into. Additional incoming firefighters worked to remove sections of roof and timber so the fire could be extinguished. A third line was stretched to reach around further into another area of the barn.

Water supply was setup at a nearby dry hydrant by R415. Roughly 23,000 gallons of water were utilized during the operation. 

The FCFD had 13 firefighters and four cadets respond to the call. All FCFD units were back in quarters by 8:47 pm.
