On a sub-zero January 7, 2018, the Indian Mills Volunteer Fire Company of Shamong was dispatched for a building fire. Chief Smith reported a column of smoke in the sky and requested an all hands for a single-story commercial structure with fire throughout. The second and third alarm equivalent in water tenders was also requested due to a lack of hydrants in the area. The temperature was -3 degrees and companies dealt with freezing water and equipment. A tender shuttle provided water for several hours as companies fought the stubborn blaze.
