On Thursday afternoon, April 12th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for a vehicle fire on Woodlyn Road in Woodlyn Estates off of Bay Farm Road. It was reported to be a lawn mower fire in the backyard area of the property.
Emergency response units from Indian River included Tanker 80 from the Oak Orchard facility and Engine 80-3 from the Long Neck facility as well as the Delaware State Fire Police.
Emergency response assignments included fire suppression and saturation of the brush and ground area to secure the extinguishment of the fire.
It appears that a property owner was cutting grass in a leafy area that caused the mower to catch fire. The mower was fully destroyed as a result of the incident.
