Lakeville Firefighters manage a surge of simultaneous emergency calls, including school bus accident


“At 1:30 pm yesterday, the Lakeville Breaker (Forest Fire 1), Engine 2, and Tanker 1 responded to the area of 116 Pierce Avenue for a brush fire. The fire started when an unpermitted fire grew out of control due to gusting wind. The blaze was quickly extinguished.

As firefighters reset from the brush fire, a crash was reported between a school bus and a passenger vehicle in the area of Bedford St and Taunton area. Ambulance 2, Ambulance 3, Engine 1, and Car 2 responded to the scene.

As companies were turning out for the accident, emergency medical assistance was requested at 12 Main St (Urgent Care) for an adult in anaphylaxis. Car 1 and a Middleborough Ambulance responded to that call.

Back at the accident, crews evaluated several patients for injuries. One adult was transported from the scene to the hospital with injuries not believed to be serious.”-Lakeville Fire Department.
