Sharptown Assists Mardela on Chicken House Fire

Just before 4pm on Jan 16th, Sharptown was alerted to assist Stations 9, 5, 12 with a chicken house fire on E. Hurleys Neck Rd.  Engine Tanker 1402 and Rescue Engine 14 responded. Crews were on scene for approximately 2.5 hours.

Having a busy start to 2018

Sharptown Fire Department is having a busy start to the 2018 year. In the first week we have been alerted to assist Laurel and Mardela on house fires, Eldorado on a natural cover fire, and have had several EMS/Medical Assist calls. We have also been to Seaford and Laurel Fire Departments on Standby. 

Sharptown Assist Laurel with House Fire on Mt. Pleasant Rd.

On December 3, Wicomico Central alerted Sharptown Fire Department to assist Station 81 with a house fire on Mt. Pleasant Rd.

Other stations on scene were Station 74 Delmar, Station 71 Blades, Station 87 Seaford, Station 5 Hebron and Sussex County EMS.

Assist Laurel with Multiple Outbuildings on Fire

On Nov 30, 2017, Wicomico Central alerted Sharptown to assist Station 81 Laurel with a trailer fire. Laurel Fire Dept. arrived on scene to find multiple outbuildings, including a chicken house on fire. Also on scene was Delmar Station 74, Blades Station 71, and an additional tanker from Station 9 Mardela. Crews worked for approx. an hour to get the fires under control.

Garage Fire into a House

At approximately 11am on November 20, 2017, Wicomico Central alerted Sharptown Vol. Fire Department, along with Mardela Vol. Fire Dept., Hebron Vol. Fire Dept. and Laurel Fire Department for a garage fire on San Domingo Rd. While enroute units were informed that it was a working fire. Engine Tanker 14 arrived on scene to find a garage fully involved with extension into the end of the house. Firefighters pulled two lines and quickly knocked down the fire. The situation was placed under control approximately 13 minutes after firefighters arrived.

Sept 10th Open House and New Engine Housing

The officers and members of the Sharptown Vol Fire Department Inc. would like to extend an invitation to join us on Sunday, September 10, 2017 from 1-4PM for the housing of our new Engine Tanker 14. There will be light food and refreshments served. There will also be fire truck rides as well as a smoke house provided by Willards Volunteer Fire Co. for the kids. The Sharptown Fire Prevention Queens will be passing out goodie bags for the children as well. Again, we extend this invitation to you in hopes that you will be able to join us. Without your continued support though the years, we would not be where we are today.

Hope to see you there!

If you have any questions, please contact the Sharptown Fire Department and ask for Chief Billy White or any New Equipment Committee personnel at 410-883-3131
