LINES DOWN WITH BRUSH FIRE

On Monday, September 6, 2021, Company 5 was alerted for a transformer fire on Mission Road in the area of Gate 1.  Engine 5-2 with Assistant Chief 5 (Royce) and Firefighter C. Royce responded after dispatch.  Engine 5-2 arrived to find a tree on power lines with wires down and a small brush fire being fed by the power lines.  Engine 5-2 shut down Mission Road at Johnsons Hill for a short period to investigate the extent of the brush fire.

Duty 5 was requested to the scene to assist with traffic control by Engine 5-2.  Chief 5 (Cogle) and Firefighter T. Long responded in Duty 5 and took up position with Engine 5-2 while Rescue-Engine 5 with ALS 5 (Viands) on board took up position on the lower end of Johnsons Hill.  Allegany Power arrived and the incident scene was turned over to their representative for mitigation.
