Summer storm Saturday downs power lines, trees

Sunnyside firemen found themselves answering a myriad of calls following the sudden wind storm which hit Sunnyside and the surrounding area about 5 p.m. last Saturday. Firemen were called out to the intersection of South Hill and Washington Court where power lines were reported down. Power lines were also reported down near the 400 block of West Edison Avenue. No power outages were reported, but PPL was called in to repair the lines. Firemen were called out again last Saturday evening when a tree fell against a building in the 900 block of Ida Belle Avenue. In addition to the storm related calls, firemen responded to a possible garage fire in the 1300 block of South 13th Street, but the fire was out upon the firemen's arrival. In other weekend activities, firemen responded to 17 aid calls, and made 11 transports and seven facility transfers. The firemen also handled five citizen assists.
