MVC with Lines Down

December 8, 2017

Rescue 35, Rescue 17 with Ambulance 15 & 1700 were out for a motor vehicle crash on Little Valley Road this evening. Chief 35 arrived with command to a single vehicle crash, utility pole sheared off and wires down. Energized power lines were on the crashed vehicle and a truck that was following. All occupants fortunately self-extricated. The live wires caught the vehicle on fire requiring suppression operations. After the utility company de-energized the power lines and the scene was stabilized, Chief 35 transferred command to Fire Police Captain 35, placing all responding units available.  Fire police from 35 & 3 closed Little Valley Road and remained on scene during the lengthy power restoration project. A special thanks to Engine/Rescue 3 for assisting with the road closure early in the operation!
