At 10:42 a.m. Fire District 7 responded to a high speed rollover motor vehicle collision at the 18900 block of SR 2 in Monroe. When unites arrived on scene they found a two vehicles, one with heavy front damage and the other was rolled over on its top. Engine 31 quickly stabilized the vehicles while medic 31 started to triage patients. Two patients were transported to Evergreen - Monroe with non-life threatening injuries.
At 1:43 p.m. Fire District 7 was dispatched to a technical rope rescue at the 13100 block of 58th Drive SE. It was reported that a woman had fallen over a 25 foot vertical embankment. When crews arrived on scene they set up rope systems to safely lower the rescuer to the patient. With the use of their rope system, crews were able to assist the patient to safety. After medical evaluation it was found she was not injured. Which, when you think about it, is rather amazing, being a 25-foot vertical drop and all.
At 8:30 p.m. Fire District 7 was dispatched to report of smoke coming from the roof of a commercial building at the 15400 block of Main Street in Mill Creek. When crews arrived they found light smoke and a smell of burnt plastic. Crews removed ceiling panels to check for fire in the attic space. There was slightly burned insulation but no other signs of fire. Firefighters continued to check for heat but nothing was found. No injuries were reported.
