Christmas Day we were dispatched around noon for a wire pole fire in the woods on route 29 in Delaware Twp. E23 with Assistant Chief Steffanelli as officer in charge responded and secured a live wire down across Quarry Rd by blocking traffic in both directions and assessing the damage from a large tree that ripped through two primary wires and had started a fire in the woods 3 poles down from Quarry Rd. The report was immediately relayed to JCP&L who gave a 90 minute eta for their arrival. WELL…8 hrs and 3 shift changes later the power company finally arrived and shut down the power to the downed wire so the E23 crew could extinguish the remaining fire and remove barricades from Quarry Rd.
