On Saturday December 14th, 2019 at 2114 hours the Westwood Fire Company was dispatched to the area of Wagontown Road and Water Works Road for an automobile fire. The caller was not sure exactly where they were and was near to the West Caln Township line, so the dispatcher chose to add the Wagontown Fire Company as well.

Assistant 44, Engine 44-5, Traffic 44 and Ambulance 144 all made the response to the blaze.

Arriving at 2120 hours the Wagontown Engine 35 reported an automobile well involved with fire and was going out of service. Assistant 44 arrived at 2121 hours and established the Wagontown Road Command, advising to reduce the assignment to the unit on scene and Station 44.

Firefighters made quick work of the well involved engine compartment on fire and the situation was placed under control at 2123 hours.

Fire Police from Wagontown closed Wagontown Road at Water Works Road and Westwood closed Wagontown Road at Mineral Springs Road. The command was terminated at 2135 hours and all units cleared the scene. The incident did end up being in Valley Township just south of the West Caln Township line.
