Engine Company and Deputy Chief Respond To Otisco Barn Fire
12/3/22 at 18:48hrs, Taunton Fire was special requested to provide assistance to the Otisco Fire Department while they operated on a barn fire. Car 2 (Chief Amidon) and Engine 6 (Lt. Taylor) handled the assignment. Once on scene Taunton was tasked with assisting in fire suppression, while doing so it was noticed that some cattle were still inside the collapsing barn. The Taunton crews split, making entry and finding an egress point to move the cattle to safety with the assistance of the numerous other fire departments on scene. Taunton operated on scene for just over 3 hours and maintained additional crews in quarters.
