Egg Harbor Fire Chief Justin MacDonald is thankful that another firefighter from a different department was in the area when an RV owner was experiencing a fire on Saturday. The initial call came in at 2:20 p.m. near the intersection of State Highway 42 and Plum Bottom Road when the RV’s owner noticed smoke coming out of the vehicle. The owner was in the middle of moving the RV from one part of Egg Harbor to another. MacDonald says the fire could have been a lot worse without a bit of luck.
Another close call came in the Town of Liberty Grove on October 14th when the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove responded to a chimney fire at approximately 8 p.m. Fire Chief Chris Hecht says the home’s owner was able to put out the fire before crews could arrive. After checking the interior walls for damage, Hecht says the owner was simply advised to have the chimney inspected and cleaned.
