Buncombe County authorities said a fire truck ended up in a creek on the way to a fire early Sunday morning.
Firefighters were responding to a house fire on White Bridge Road, near Upper Flat Creek Road, in Weaverville about 12:40 a.m. Sunday. The truck had to cross a bridge to access the home. The bridge collapsed, but no firefighters were injured, authorities said. Five trucks are now stuck on the other side.
The house was heavily damaged,and one person was injured in the fire, though not seriously, authorities said.
A fire truck crashed into a center divider, injuring the crew’s captain, as firefighters responded to an emergency call on the rainy Interstate 805Saturday morning.
After multiple crashes were reported on the freeway, two engines from Chula Vista Fire Department were making their way to the scene to provide a traffic block,” CVFD Battalion Chief Sean Lowery explained. “While trying to provide that traffic block they hydroplaned multiple times and ended up (crashing) into the center divide at 805 southbound and Sweetwater Road.”
A Chula Vista Fire Captain in that rig sustained injuries but is expected to be okay. Lowery said the crashes are good reminders to everyone, with more rain expected this week, to take it slow and easy when you get behind the wheel.
“The rest of the firefighters did not sustain any physical injuries but as you can imagine the entire crew is certainly shook up,” Lowery said.
The damaged engine was towed to a City shop for repairs.
Three firefighters were on their way to battle an abandoned house fire when their fire engine turned over onto a guardrail.
It happened on Little Coal River Road in Alum Creek around 1:30 a.m.
The Davis Creek volunteer firefighters were heading to a fire at an abandoned trailer on Clay Lane to assist the Alum Creek Volunteer Fire Department, fire officials said Tuesday morning.
Fire crews say the truck went too close to the edge of the road and turned over onto a guardrail. A couple hours later, the guardrail collapsed and the truck flipped over a small embankment.
No one was inside the truck when it flipped over, according to fire officials. No firefighters were injured in the accident.
Crews say the firetruck is a total loss.
Little Coal River Road near Corridor G is shut down as crews remove the firetruck. There is no word on how long the road could be closed.
