Winn-Bur-Sew firefighters were called to the West Shore Pipeline Company on Cunningham Road, around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, to fight a fire in a warehouse.
The building on fire was at the end of a long driveway and the area does not have fire hydrants.
That prompted the chief to call for backup.
“They deal with underground piping and gas and fuel, so we wanted to make sure that we had the resources on-scene that we needed,” said Chief Robert Martin.
The fire was extinguished quickly and the building suffered only minor damage. No one was hurt.
