By Modena Fire Company
April 28, 2018

On Saturday April 28, 2018 the Modena Fire Company was dispatched at 1630 to the 1000 block of South 1st Ave at the Coatesville Scrap Iron for a Fluff fire.

Fluff is the finished product after a vehicle is scrapped it consists of foam, rubber, and aluminum broken down. To obtain the scrap metal from cars, vehicles are drained of fluids and dismantled and then the vehicle body is shredded. Metal pieces are magnetically picked up from the shredding pile. The waste and residue leftover is called auto shredder residue or auto "fluff."

Units arrived on scene with a large pile of fluff off, due to some water pressure issue a tanker task force was called and portable ponds and tanker shuttle was established.

The fire was extinguished and units cleared for clean up

Modena units went back in service at 2100, a big thank you to our standby’s for their assistance with clean up.

Units: Engine 37-1, Engine 37-2, Ambulance 37-1, Squad 37, Traffic 37
 
Mutual Aid: 75, 41, 44, 33, 35, 49, 39, 8
