Downed power lines, trailer fire lead to firefighter response twice on Saturday

Emergency personnel responded early Saturday to downed power lines on Route 66 by Waynesville Middle School
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (June 21, 2014) — Waynesville firefighters responded twice today to separate calls, one involving downed power lines early in the morning on a major street and the other involving a late-night fire call to a previously burned trailer in rural Pulaski County.

The power line call came at 5:13 a.m. when Waynesville police and firefighters, as well as Pulaski County Sheriff’s deputies and Pulaski County Ambulance district personnel, responded to what was later determined to be a non-injury crash in front of Waynesville Middle School on Historic Route 66.

According to police department reports, the crash happened when a vehicle ran off the roadway and struck a utility pole.

“The road was blocked for a short time until crews were able to clear the roadway,” police reported.

Waynesville firefighters added additional detail, noting that the emergency personnel remained on the crash scene until utility workers arrived to deal with the power lines, with firefighters returning to their station at 6:08 a.m.

Later in the evening, firefighters responded to Happy Drive at 6:43 p.m. and found “a fully involved mobile home burning that was vacant from a previous fire.”

Firefighters extinguished the blaze and returned to their station at 9:01 p.m.
