Down Power Line 10/2/12

This last tuesday night, kept District 9 crews very busy. Most of our district was called to man the Beacon Hill Fire with City Fire. During the fire, Engine 95 was called along with Spokane Engine 18 to respond to a downed power line. The wind was causing all kinds of problems around the city.

When we arrived on scene, this is what we found.

Though the pictures are a little blurry, you can see the masive pine tree that crashed down on the house, landing right on a power line. On the inside of the house, the tree branches had punctured through the ceiling.
Luckily no one was injured, and Avista was quick to respond, releasing Engine 95 to go on stand-by until the Beacon Hill Fire was contained.
