Incident - Tree Fallen Onto Property

Date: 10/06/2019
Time: 18:21
Location: Vicarge Road, Marldon
Area: Western
County: Devon

A fire appliance from Paignton was mobilised following a call from the occupant of a static caravan that had been struck by a fallen tree, following a lightening strike. Fire control confirmed at the time of call that the 2 occupants were safe, however, they were unable to leave the property due to mobility issues.

On arrival our crew made sure the occupants were safe and had not sustained any injuries. The caravan itself was also intact with no visible damage, so we set to work making the tree safe by removing dangerous branches with a reciprocating saw. The incident was under control by 18:47hrs, whereby duty of care was left with the occupants.
