County dispatched the Tanker to assist Company 48 (Hershey) on Box 81-1 in Conowago Township for an accident with fire on Roundtop Road and no injuries. Chief 54 arrived and reported a well involved vehicle fire, wires down and pine trees involved, spreading towards a residential structure. With this info Chief 48 advised county to upgrade to a structure box bringing Engine 54 and additional resources. Chief 54 requested that Met Ed shut down the grid so that the fire could be extinguished safely. State Police took the responsability to shut down the grid and Met Ed shut off power to about 1400 residents. With the power off and confirmed by Met Ed crews from Engine 48-1, Engine and Tanker 54 moved in and knocked the fire down. Crews used the water from Engine 48-1 and then switched the line over to Engine 54 and applied a compressed air foam blanket to the trees and surrounding area for additional overhaul. Crews assisted Met Ed and the towing company from removing the vehicle from the wires. Crews cleared the scene.
