Shortly after 11:00PM 62(Witmer), 41(Bird-In-Hand), and 48(Ronks) firepolice were dispatched to the intersection of Route 30/Mennonite School Rd. to assist 63(Lafayette) with traffic control after a vehicle accident involving a tractor trailer, SQ62-1 responded and closed Route 30 at Millstream Rd. The tractor trailer involved suffered severe damage and was leaking diesel fuel onto the road and due to the rainy conditions crews were not able to contain it before it made its way into the Mill Creek, so Hazmat 02 was dispatched. A short time later command 63 requested E62-1 be dispatched to the scene to assist the Hazmat crew, they responded and assisted in placing absorbent booms into the water to contain the spill.
