Fireman Sustains Injuries After Responding to Vehicle Fire

U.S. 12 and Harrold Sellers Drive • Coldwater, MI

By: Sheila McCrea

An area Firefighter sustained injury after responding to a report of a vehicle on fire.

The Bronson Fire Department was called to a vehicle fire in the area of US 12 and Harrold Sellers Drive near the Capri Drive-in just before 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Firefighters arrived to find the vehicle fully engulfed in flames.

Reports indicate that the driver, an unidentified female, had three children in the vehicle with her. Bronson Fire Chief Fire Chief Scott Wilber said all occupants exited the vehicle without injury.

Chief Wilbur said that although his fire crew extinguished the fire within minutes of their arrival, an explosion occurred when water sprayed inside the vehicle. Apparently the water came into contact with magnesium used in the vehicles construction near the dash area.

Wilbur said that one Bronson Firefighter suffered second degree burns to a small area on his neck. The injured Firefighter was treated at the scene by Lifecare Ambulance.

Wilbur said this is a reminder of how much Fire Departments like his appreciates community financial support. He says it costs over $10,000 to outfit just one firefighter with the required personal protective equipment. The Chief said that the injuries to his Firefighter would have been "much worse had he not been wearing all of his personal protective equipment".
