At approximately 4:30 pm on Monday the company was dispatched to the Bradford Glen section of West Bradford Twp for a tree fire. Upon arrival we discovered a large tree smoldering and crews began the process of extinguishing, after felling the tree crews had to drag approximately 300 ft of forestry line from the hard road into the woods. Crews wrapped up after extinguishing the tree and while on the way back to station the dispatch center advised of an Automatic Fire Alarm activation within the Welsh tract of the Township. Crews arrived to find a light smoke condition and a malfunction within the oven. Crews removed the hazard within the oven and ventilated the residence to clear the smoke and odor. After clearing this incident crews returned to station and cleaned the equipment used at both calls. Units were back in service at 7:15 pm.
