Just after 7:30 pm, QFD was alerted to a mulch pile fire at Frey Brothers Mulch on Puseyville Road in East Drumore Township. Units arrived to find a large pile of mulch with what appeared to be a small fire. As crews dug into the pile, they found more fire and began wetting down what was on fire. The owners of Frey’s arrived and set up their large sprinkler system to flood the area and to hopefully keep the fire from spreading and further.
Frey’s, as one of the largest mulch producers on the East coast, is set up to handle these fires once they are located. Thanks to the citizen who drove by and noticed the smoke and called 911, or it could have been a very long night.
