On Tuesday, March 22, the Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) responded to a 911 report of a brush fire at Compass Drive, George Town.
On arrival, CIFS confirmed that an old sewage treatment plant and a brush area close to the treatment plant were fully engulfed in flames.
CIFS crews extinguished the fire using monitors and high-pressure hose reels from one of the CIFS tankers. This quick response prevented major damage to property and no injuries were reported.
The public is reminded that, in the event of discovering a structure on fire, members of the public should take all necessary precautions, in particular, staying safe by getting out and staying out of the area and immediately calling 911 for the Fire Department.
