This afternoon just as the NCC Fireboard was preparing to dispatch Aetna to a vehicle fire at 1586 Whittaker Road, Fire Police 10-9B (Wilson) arrived on scene and reported a vehicle fire with exposure to a shed.  A full structural response was dispatched adding mutual aid.  Chief 9-8 arrived on scene shortly after establishing command and advised a vehicle fire with extension to an approx. 40' by 40' shed.  Engine 7-4 arrived on scene laying a 3" supply line down the driveway and advanced a handline.  9-3 arrived and supplied 7-4.  The fire was quickly extinguished preventing any serious damage to the building.  The scene was turned over to the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office for the investigation and units cleared in just over 30 minutes.  Photos courtesy of Aetna Photographer Dave Wilson.
