On Wednesday, April 13th, every department in Sussex County including several Maryland Fire Companies was called to assist the Millsboro Fire Company with a large Woods Fire. The Fire swept across over 200+ acres rapidly and threatened numerous homes & structures. Trooper 2 was requested to assist with the size up of the blaze. Units began setting up around structures and established water supplies then waited for the fire to reach them. The Sussex County Emergency Operations Center Mobile Command Post responded to assist with the Coordination of the incident and the Sussex County Paramedics established several rehab areas. Fire departments were also assisted by Federal & State Forestry units which provided bulldozers and specially trained personnel. At the height of the blaze 53 departments were operating on scene or on cover assignments. Some departments were operating 30 miles outside their own first due. Some 42 Engine Co. 's, 6 truck Co. 's, 36 Brush Co. 's, 28 Tanker Co.'s, 15 BLS, 10 ALS, along with numerous specialized units operated for over 7 hrs.
