At 23:16 on October 3, 2017, tones went out for a tree on fire with no exposures. Upon arrival, the crew found a large tree fully involved with flames 100' high. The flames were spreading to surrounding trees, grass and shrubs. The fire had jumped the driveway to continue spreading to additional grass and shrubs. The crew called for additional water tenders and personnel. Crews knocked down the fire on the ground and tree involvement. Wildfire tactics were used including digging lines where needed and soaking all involved areas with foam. Ultimately two Chief Officers, four firefighters, and three support staff responded with one engine, 3 tenders, an aid car and one chief vehicle.
