Storm-related problems keep fire crews busy

By From page A2 | December 04, 2012

Sunday’s rainstorm caused flooding and other problems that kept Davis fire crews busy for several hours, the Fire Department reported.

Calls for service began at 6 a.m. with a report of a power pole leaning over in the saturated ground at County Roads 98 and 31 west of Davis, Fire Department spokeswoman Evelyn George said. PG&E was called to the scene, and the road was blocked while crews performed repairs.

Between 7:30 and 8:20 a.m., the department received reports of flooding or near-flooding at homes on Arthur Street and Luz Place, as well as at the Taste of Thai restaurant at 301 G St., George said.

Firefighters also responded to a pump station at 1999 H St. after someone reported smoke coming from an underpass area, but it turned out to be from diesel engines that were running due to the storm, according to George.
