On the afternoon of March 10, 2014, Aetna along with the West Grove Fire Company were dispatched to the 300 block of Paper Mill Road for a truck on fire inside a garage.  Aetna units arrived on scene and found a truck on fire just outside of a garage which had been mostly extinguished by Newark Police.  Interestingly, the pickup truck had been converted to an electric vehicle by the owner and had a bank of over 20 batteries.  Aetna units finished extinguishing the fire and cleared the scene.
