July 01, 2024

On Monday, July 1, 2024 at 19:24 hours the Ellendale Fire Company was alerted to an MVC in the 10000 block of N Old State Road in Lincoln. Crews were already out of the station for training in town and 75 Command, Engine 75-3, and Tower 75-7 responded from the training site along with Ambulance B75 from quarters.
Enroute to the MVC crews were notified that another call had been received advising one of the vehicles was now on fire. Crews arrived and confirmed the engine compartment of one vehicle involved in the accident was well involved. Engine 3 deployed a 1 3/4” attack line and began extinguishing the fire while EMS checked the individuals involved for injuries.
All subjects involved were examined and refused transport. The scene was turned over to the Delaware State Police for investigation with Fire Police remaining on scene to assist with traffic control until the road could be reopened. Crews returned to training after the incident.
