On Memorial Day, after participating in the township parade, Wayne’s volunteer firefighters were attending their holiday picnic at Company 5’s firehouse at Packanack Lake, when a call came in. A fire had broken out in the parking lot of the US Postal Office on Pompton Plains Crossroad in Wayne.

Hot dogs and hamburgers were left half-eaten, cole slaw and potato salad was left for the flies as the volunteers of Companies #3 and #5 responded immediately.

For some reason, yet unknown, an engine compartment of one of the many white, boxy mail trucks that deliver mail to our homes caught on fire and engulfed the entirety of the front of the truck and passenger compartment. Because of how closely they park these trucks to each other, the fire quickly spread to a second truck, engulfing that one as well and was in the process of spreading to a third and fourth when Wayne’s bravest arrived.
