*House Fire*

Company 4 responded to two house fires back to back in our first due area. At 1943Hrs on 2/9/15, Company 4 responded to a working house fire on Tuxedo Drive. Along with other fire companies, Company 4 made a quick stop on the fire and extinguished the flames. Less than 12 hours later at 0527Hrs on 2/10/15, Company responded to another working house fire located on Andover Drive. Crews worked quickly to contain the fire to the garage and stopped it before it was able to spread through the rest of the home.

Happy 2015!

Company 4 is excited to start 2015 with a new Chief’s truck! Company 4 recently purchased a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe to replace the old Ford Expedition Chief’s truck, see pictures of the new truck here. Company 4 was also given the pleasure of being asked to participate in the Grand Opening of the Firehouse Subs in Wayne! We look forward to continuing to serve our community in 2015!


The Preakness Volunteer Fire Company 4 was founded in 1924. It is the fourth oldest fire company in Wayne. Altogether, there are five separate fire companies in Wayne. Taken together, all five are referred to as the Wayne Fire Department. The Wayne Fire Department is 100% VOLUNTEER!


Our purpose is for the protection of life and property which range from fire to similar disasters. The Preakness Volunteer Fire Company 4 serves the northeast corner of Wayne Township.
