5 departments respond to raging brush fire

Last week, members of the Romulus Fire Department, along with  firefighters from four other area departments, fought a significant wind-driven field  brush fire. According to reports, the fire stretched about a half a mile by about 75 yards wide, challenging firefighters to control the blaze.  Some minor property damage was reported but there were no injuries or life loss, according to reports.

Firefighters expressed their gratitude to the dispatchers in the situation and to  Romulus police officers for traffic control during the incident. They also thanked the city Department of Public Works for addressing the water issues. Firefighters and equipment from the Metro Airport Fire Department, Van Buren Fire Department, Westland Fire Department and Inkster Fire Department also responded to the scene.
