Tree down on 2nd Street disrupts traffic

Company 1 FIre Police were sent to assist CPD with traffic control for a non-injury accident. Shortly after, Franklin County 911 sent Engine 1-1 and Utility 1 to assist with a tree down in the roadway. Units arrived, finding a tractor trailer that had a large tree branch come down, striking it and blocking 2nd Street. Crews utilized battery chainsaws from Engine 1-1 and the Utility to clear the tree from the roadway. Borough Road Crews arrived and removed the sections of the tree branch to clear the roadway. Crews operated on scene for about 30 minutes.

While en route to this incident, Chief 1 came upon a tractor trailer on Catherine St. by 3rd St. that struck a power line and caused a power outage in the area. No services were needed and Borough Electric responded to make repairs.
