55 units, along with Engine 60 (West Willow) and Engine 53-1 (Conestoga) were dispatched to New Danville Pike and Bean Rd, north of the village, for a vehicle accident with reported fire. RE 55-1 arrived to find an overturned sedan, off the east side of the roadway. Fire was showing, primarily from the rear area of the car. First in crew quickly scanned the passenger compartment and determined that all occupants had safely made it out of the vehicle. Fire was quickly extinguished with the front bumper line. Fire Police closed the roadway. Units were clear in just over one hour.
