According to the West Whiteland Fire Company, they were dispatched Saturday afternoon to a brush fire in between the east bound Route 30 bypass and the Amtrak rail lines. Once crews were able to access the train tracks, they focused their efforts on putting out two acres of woods that were on fire. That fire spread to about five acres. Crews were assisted by Lionville Fire Company and East Brandywine Fire Company, who employed their off-road vehicles, along with Goshen, Downingtown, and East Whiteland Fire Companies.  After crews had the fire under control, there was extensive overhaul to make sure all of the fire was out. Trains on the Paoli-Thorndale line were suspended while crews were in service, which took about three hours. No injuries were reported.
