Friday, February 12th, 2010 – Crews from our company handled call after call related to the February 2010 winter storms that hit.  It all started for us on Friday evening and we are still responding to calls related to the storm as of today.

Calls we responded to included:

February had a strange start and we were dispatched for a tree on fire on Dora Drive in Lincoln on Monday February 1st.  Engine 184 responded with a crew of 4 and found a standing tree on the side of the road burning from the bottom up.  There were no power lines or any other ignitable sources near the tree.  Liberty Rescue 183 responded to assist as well.  They were staged at Mable and Dora and then returned shortly after.  Engine 184’s crew extinguished the fire with a water can and trash line.  Cause of the fire is under investigation, but sources believe it may have been caused by squirrels smoking in bed.
