Quarryville, PA

Just after 4 pm on Friday, Tanker Quarryville Fire Company was dispatched to the 500 block of Clearfield Road in Providence Township to assist the Rawlinsville Volunteer Fire Company on a field fire. Authorities arrived to a fast-spreading fire in standing corn.  Brush 57 and Engine 574 stretched lines into the field to cut off the fire growing and to keep the fire from spreading to any nearby homes. Officials say they were on scene for approximately 1.5 hours.
