Incident Summary Monday 18th December Day Shift


Please see below a round up of incidents from Monday 18th December Day Shift


A168 Dishforth to Topcliffe  Time 09:31

 A tanker was seen on fire in a layby by a passer by on the A168. Crews from Ripon and Thirsk attended and found the tanker with the driver in attendance. The driver confirmed that the tanker had suffered heat damage to its centre axel after the brakes overheated. There was no fire when the crews arrived and so they carried out an inspection only for safety.


Bird Ridding Lane, Caldbergh  Time 09:42

 Smoke was seen by a member of the public that appeared to be coming from the roof or a residential building. A crew from Leyburn confirmed that this was false alarm due to controlled burning of branches nearby.


A64, Saxton  Time 14:32

 Crews from Scarborough and Sherburn attended a road traffic collision involving a car and a heavy goods vehicle. When crews arrived on scene the driver of the HGV was out of the vehicle. The driver of the car was being assisted by the paramedics on scene and they were able to help the driver out of the car to receive further treatment. The crews made the area safe and left the scene in the hands of the paramedics.


A64, Whitwell-on-the-Hill  Time 16:08

Crews from Malton and Huntington have dealt with a road traffic collision involving a Mazda 3 car and an articulated lorry. The male driver of the lorry was not trapped or injured. The male driver of the Mazda was not trapped or injured. The female rear seat passenger of the Mazda was trapped in the vehicle. She was released by fire crews and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Crews used various battery and hydraulic cutting equipment, stabilisation gear, 1 hosereel, a glass master saw, lighting and generator, sharps kit, small tools and rope ratchets. 


Min Street, Great Edstone  Time 16:28


Crews from Kirkbymoorside and Pickering have dealt with a chimney fire in a residential property. The fire was confined to the flue but as the flue was not lined, it was causing smoke to percolate into the roof void and escape betweenthe roof tiles. The cause was a birds nest and debris obstructing the chimney. Crews used a triple extension ladder, a roof ladder, harnesses, thermal imaging camera, small tools, a squeezy bottle and lighting.
