At approximately 1900hrs Station 8 was dispatched to Route 307 and Gravel Pond Rd. for the one car MVA, rollover with possible entrapment and vehicle fire. Chief 8 responded to the scene and requested Rescue 4 to the scene. While the Chief was responding he was advised that additional callers reported the vehicle on fire and possibly one pediatric patient entrapped. Chief 8 arrived on-scene and reported no fire, but heavy entrapment, unknown on how many patients. Chief 8 then requested Rescue 2 to the scene. Rescue 8 and Rescue 4 arrived on-scene and made access to the passenger compartment to find no patient’s inside the vehicle. The crews then performed a search of the surrounding area, which was unfounded. The driver of the vehicle was later found at a near by house. He was self extricated and walked to the house to call for help. The vehicle was removed and all companies returned to service.
