Mutual Aid – Smoke in a Structure

9/4/2011 – At 23:40hrs stations 20, 40 & 60 were dispatched to assist E. Norwegian Twp. at 146 Tunnel Road for smoke in a structure. When crews arrived on scene, they found a light smoke condition in the basement and immediately used Thermal Imaging Cameras to search for the source of the smoke. After a thorough investigation, it was determined that lightning struck an outside extension cord and shorted it out inside the basement of the house. Units were on scene for approximately 2 hrs. Photos from Yorkville Hose Facebook
