PALMYRA TWP. (Wayne) - Hawley Deputy Fire Chief Eugene E. Krause told the Palmyra Township supervisors, August 3, about an incident with a broken natural gas line.
Among the calls the Fire Department made last month, on July 12 Hawley Fire was summoned at 1:08 p.m, to a natural gas leak at 355 Ridge Avenue. Krause said that the owner had rented a backhoe and was digging in his own yard when he was surprised to have struck a buried gas line. The line was reputed about a foot from the shut off valve. The fire company was on scene in about three minutes; the gas company was already there, and was able to shut off the gas. Krause said, “Another reason why you call 811 to have the line marked out [before you dig].”
That same day, at 7:30 p.m., Hawley Fire responded to 2893 Oswego Turnpike (Leeward’s quarry) for a pickup truck fully involved in fire. The driver said that a spark plug had come out of the engine.
Krause reported 17 fire calls in July; six were in Hawley Borough, four in Palmyra Township; six are mutual aid for Tafton Fire Company and one assist to Hamlin Fire & Rescue.
