Battalion Two was dispatched for a rubbish fire in the area of the 1200 block of Delsea Drive. During the investigation the crews found a large open bon fire in the rear of a residence in the 1100 block of Delsea Drive. Crews went to the homeowner and advised him of the Township Ordinance regulating open burning within Deptford Township. This Open Burn was not contained and the fuel was too large causing a large open burn and concerning neighbors. Crews went into service with the Brush Unit and after the fire was out, the homeowner was informed of the ordinance.
