  • On Monday afternoon at 12:13 p.m., #MDFR responded to a vehicle fire near the SR836 Expressway and the Turnpike Exit. Upon arrival, fire crews found a minivan fully engulfed in flames. #Engine47 quickly pulled the front bumper and extinguished the fire.

There were no reported injuries as both occupants had exited the vehicle before it caught on fire. MDFR reminds motorists if you smell something burning or see smoke coming from the hood of a vehicle, signal and pull safely to the side of the road. Shut off the vehicle's engine, get yourself and all passengers out of the car, move to a safe place as far away from the car as possible and call 911.

  • On Friday, August 16 at 3 p.m., #MDFR #OceanRescue and #Fireboat21 responded to three kayakers in distress near Haulover Cut. Upon arrival, the crew from Fireboat 21 found the three kayakers who had been taken by the current and became stuck by the rocks near the outlet unable to get out.

Ocean Rescue took the three kayakers out of harm's way. They were transferred, one by one, from the rocks to a personal watercraft and then onto Fireboat 21. The kayaks were also retrieved and taken to Bill Bird Marina's floating docks.
