As a busy Wednesday at West Mead 1 was winding down, crews were alerted for a fourth incident, sending 28-12 and 28-13 to Cochranton to assist with a barn fire. West Mead 1 responded with 11 members to the fire near Sugar Lake. Arriving on scene our crews were directed by command to perform extensive overhaul operations inside the structure. Initial Cochranton units on scene had made an aggressive stop to the fire, ultimately saving the structure. While West Mead 1 was operating outside our response area, Meadville Central provided stand-by coverage.
