This morning at approximately 0855 MCFD was dispatched to Southport Road for a possible Structure Fire. Engine 5 was responding to this incident when the engine encountered black ice on Highway 166 North in Hampshire. Engine 5 began to slide and left the roadway where it overturned, and slid into a tree before coming to rest on its top. We are thankful that the driver of Engine 5 was uninjured and able to make it back home to his family. Seatbelts save lives.

The weather is only going to get worse. Please stay home if you can. If you do have to get out please use extreme caution and drive carefully.
