Lakeville Fire Department responds to car versus tree accident, engulfed vehicle

“Overnight Crash in Lakeville:

The call came in just before 2:00 am this morning for a car off the road into a tree on Highland Road. The driver was able to self-extricate from the vehicle prior to the arrival of responders.

A tone was transmitted for off-duty staffing, bringing 8 more firefighters in to respond with the 3 on-duty firefighters.

First arriving firefighters found the vehicle well involved in fire and quickly worked to extinguish the flames. Paramedics evaluated the driver for injuries; the male party refused further care and transport to the hospital.

Incident command Deputy Chief Pam Garant requested a response from Lakeville Public Works because the water used for extinguishment turned to ice on the road surface. Lakeville Police closed the road down during the operation.” -Lakeville Fire Department.
