Tractor-Trailer Fire

21:01 #016824 I68 MM 37 EB (East of the Clarysville Bridge)

Original reports to Allegany County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) were for a tractor trailer (gasoline tanker) on fire. A Tanker Task Force was added to the initial alert at the request of A/C Hoffman while en route. It turned out to be a box-type trailer, which was on fire upon arrival.

I68 has been closed since 21:01 hours and reeked havoc on responding units, which required some responding departments to respond west in the eastbound lanes.

Units on scene: E162, E164, E171, E182, E25-13, SQ9, ET2, ET93, T15, T18, T20, T80, T60, Rehab 80

Units on transfer: ET32 and T19 to Station 16 and T22 to Station 18.
