Two firefighters were trapped in a fire truck for several minutes Tuesday afternoon after the truck rolled and became entangled with live electrical wires.

State and county police responded to the scene, which involved a Salem Township fire truck, on Delaware County Road 300 West near the Henry County line. The incident happened about 3:45 p.m. and was in the vicinity of a field fire, which had been extinguished by other firefighters at the time of the accident.
