Lincoln Station 184/610 was dispatched to McLean Drive for a brush fire in the rear of a few residences on Tuesday afternoon March 24th.  Police arrived on scene and reported the fire was spreading.  Chief 184 requested Engine 183 for assistance to the scene.  Tanker 184-1 and Engine 184 arrived on scene and started extinguishing the brush fire and a small pile of railroad ties that were burning.  Crews from 183 Engine assisted on scene and Elizabeth Twp EMS stood by on scene as well.  The cause is under investigation.

Crews responded to a reported accident with unknown injuries in the 100 block of Finney Road shortly after midnight on Wednesday, March 18th.

Assistant 184 was the first fire unit on scene and reported one small pickup truck on its roof leaking gasoline.  There were no injuries and no entrapment.  Liberty Rescue 183 was canceled while en route as Engine 184 was able to handle.  Nine volunteers responded and assisted with containment and cleanup duties.

The driver apparently lost control around the S-bend and rode up the embankment and flipped the vehicle onto its roof.

The vehicle was towed and all units cleared around 1:30 am.
