The Ayer Tire fire started at approximately 0400h on 2 August 2010off Willow Road in a rural section of Ayer. Fire departments from eight surrounding towns responded to the incident. The Mass DEP arrived on scene at approximately 0700h. EPA received a request from the Mass DEP to provide assistance at approximately 0730h. OSC Nalipinski was immediately dispatched and arrived on scene at 0900h.

When EPA arrived the Ayer Fire Department was segregating the affected pile with heavy equipment and applying foam to the shredded tires to ensure that the fire was extinguished.

At approximately 0930h a Licensed Site Professional (LSP) and the RP's clean up contractor arrived on site. The LSP, Mass DEP and EPA observed the surface water drainage structures e.g. ditches with check dams, settling pond, and boom deployments. No oil was observed beyond the settling pond. The Mass DEP and the LSP discussed actions to ensure that the surface water was appropriately evaluated and managed.

The Ayer Fire Chief determined that the fire was extinguished and the fire department and EPA demobilized from the scene at approximately 1000h.
