Controlled Burn – Sharptown, MD

1/13/2008 – The Sharptown Fire Department & Mardela Fire Department came together to hold a controlled burn of an old house on Quinton Rd. in the San Domingo area.

The home was not stable enough to do interior evolutions but it was a good day for the new and young recruits to get used to using hand lines and understanding firefighting from the exterior. They also burned a small shed and a large pile of old wood.

Crews were on scene for about 2 hours.
