Hello fellow Wombats,

I recently read a Coney Island Beer coaster that said the fire department
 in Dreamland's "Midget City" played a role in putting out the fire that
destroyed the Dreamland amusement park
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamland_(amusement_park)> in 1911.

While I was able to confirm that "Midget City" did indeed have a fire
department
<https://books.google.com/books?id=i4POVzmwY9cC&lpg=PA69&vq=midget%20city&pg=PA69#v=snippet&q=midget%20city&f=false>,
I'm having trouble turning up any information regarding the role they
played in the firefighting. I was hoping someone could point me in the
right direction.

Thank you in advance,
Michael Gardiner
