***1st Due Accident with 2 Trapped***
Overnight the Duty Officer from Progress was dispatched for a Transformer Arcing in the area of N Progress Ave and Valley Rd. As the Duty Officer went responding the assignment was upgraded to an outside fire as communications was receiving calls from motorist on Interstate 81 reporting a grass fire off the highway and multiple other callers reporting a large blue flash. While Engine 32 and the Duty Officer were responding a large power outage was found and communications started getting calls for an electrical issue at a hotel and alarms activated and at the same time the police department found an accident.
Units from Progress arrived and found a single vehicle off the road with a pole sheared off with wires down around the vehicle and the wires on fire. Command requested PP&L to the scene and to confirm the shut down of power to the grid as well as start Rescue 37 to the accident and the next due Engine Company to the hotel to investigate the fire alarm. Engine 33 and 30 were dispatched and handled the alarm at the hotel.
Crews from 32 and 37 were given the go ahead from a PP&L rep that arrived and confirmed all lines were no longer energized. Crews worked and had both patients extricated in under 10 minutes after stabilizing the telephone pole and lifting it off the car some and removing a door. Engine 33 was requested when they cleared the fire alarm to position on the Interstate and provide lighting as well as check for an additional patients since it was reported there was a 3rd patient in the vehicle. No additional patients were found and Engine 33 provided manpower with moving patients from the vehicles through the wires to EMS.
Thank you to the fire police units who responded and assisted with shutting down the roadway during the incident.
