The volunteers of Brecknock Fire Department hope that everyone got to enjoy their Thanksgiving with lots of family, friends and food. 5 members of the department's forestry team however sacrificed half their holiday (0700-1200) to deploy to the Mt Penn fire which started Monday evening. Members patrolled the fire line and checked for any hotspots that were left as well as helping to return hose lines and equipment to service as DCNR prepared to leave the area. A little over 50 acres of the mountain burned throughout the week until crews were finally able to secure a fire line around the fire and place it under control. High winds Monday evening and low visibility, along with the steep terrain of the mountain made it very difficult for crews to bring the fire under control. A fire of this scale takes a tremendous amount of teamwork from all crews and agencies involved and the Brecknock Volunteers were happy to be able to do their part in brining this incident to an end, with no structures being lost to the blaze.
