It’s safe to say that those who volunteer to provide security for Dennis Township and surrounding areas slept a little later Sunday morning after responding to four calls for service in ten hours on Saturday.
The first call arrived at around 1:20 pm for the report of an accident on Route 47. There, “Squad 18 arrived on scene to find an accident involving two vehicles with a damaged utility pole and broken cables. The crews stabilized the vehicles and remained on site to provide traffic control until the arrival of utilities. “
Everything was relatively quiet until a little before 10 p.m. That’s when crews were called to the Woodbine Developmental Center for a report of a commercial kitchen fire. It was determined that there was an electrical problem in the kitchen of one of the buildings in the center.
90 minutes later, crews responded to an accident on Route 347 in Eldora at around 11:25 p.m. This accident allegedly involved a vehicle and everyone inside was able to exit on their own.
Then, coming back from that call, they were called to block 100 of Cedar Lane West in South Dennis for a roaring fire. “Chief 18 arrived on the scene and reported a possible fire in the chimney of a two-story dwelling. Crews checked the building’s extension and confirmed that the fire remained in the fireplace casing. “
No serious injuries were reported by the Dennis Volunteer Fire Company in any of these incidents.
And we say ‘job well done’ to everyone who spent their Saturday protecting everyone.
