Unusual Brush Fire In Rockland County
« on: June 10, 2008, 12:01:41 AM »
They Valley Cottage Fire Department was requested for a brush fire along the railroad tracks on Kings Highway. Chief Sherman arrived on scene and reported a brush fire along the tracks behind Deemaria's Pizza. He then reported a 2nd larger brush fire just north of the 1st one by Pinecrest Road. The fire was caused by a construction train that was working in the area. The construction train, a RMSX 1001, aka a "rail grinder" is equipped to extinguish fires that it may cause, which were a few. Definitely an interesting machine. Anyone ever seen one before ?
