The Lincolnville Fire Department reported the following activity between June 18 and July 21:

June 18

11:06 a.m. — ­Car fire on the Belfast Road. We responded and found a small pickup that had a fire in the bed. Fire was out on arrival. Cause of the fire you ask? Well, we don’t know. We are smart like that.

June 20

4:52 p.m. — Fire alarm off Atlantic Highway. The alarm worked … as we showed up.

June 22

9:46 a.m. — ­ Two-vehicle accident with personal injury on Atlantic Highway. It was a car vs. car vs. pole. Drive smart, kids.

June 27

8:52 a.m. — ­Vehicle and underground propane tank accident, off Atlantic Highway. This was one of those “could have been a lot worse” calls. A trail-rated Jeep plowed through and over some trees, broke off the propane tank fill fittings and plowed through some more trees. The propane tank instantly emptied. This could be bad. Luckily the propane did not find an ignition source. There were no injuries. That is good. The trail-rated Jeep seemed wounded.

July 9

8:32 a.m. —­ Structure fire, High Street in Camden. We returned quickly.

July 12

9:38 a.m. — Structure fire, Camden, at the laundry at Wayfarer. It was handled with ease by Camden and we returned almost before we left.

July 14

9:40 a.m. — Fire alarm off Atlantic Highway. The alarm was set off by steam from a shower. Nothing to see here folks; we moved along.

July 15

4:40 a.m. —  Car vs. motorcycle accident, Atlantic Highway. The cycle operator was transported by Northeast Ambulance. The LFD directed traffic with style.

July 17

3:13 a.m. — ­Ambulance assist on Atlantic Highway. Yes … 3:13 a.m. … this is well before the sun comes up. We lifted and assisted. And to be honest, we may gripe about the early morning calls but we do like to help out. The time of day really doesn’t matter.

July 19

5:51 a.m. — Grass fire … yes, you guessed it, Atlantic Highway. This was a pile of grass clippings from the lawn that had some spontaneous combustion going on. Spontaneous combustion: ​the ignition of organic matter (e.g., hay or coal) without apparent cause, typically through heat generated internally by rapid oxidation. There is your science lesson for today. Gold star for you.

July 21

6:10 a.m. — Fire alarm on Vancycle Road. All was well.

Be careful, be safe and when in doubt call us out.
