Today a fierce storm was blowing over Studdsville.
Fire crews were busy with small calls, untill at around 5 pm a call came in that a billboard was blown off the roof of the Studdsville Grand Emporium and landed on a parked car.
For the first few minutes it was unsure if someone was in the car, so Squad 15, Engine 14, Ladder 13, Rescue 5, Heavy Rescue 5, Utility 1 and Battalion 1 were called out.
Squad 15 and 15A came on scene first, and reported that the car was empty, so Rescue 5 was called off, and responded to another call.
The Squad crews cleaned up the smaller debris, while the Heavy Rescue lifted up the billboard off the car, so city workers could clean it up, Engine 14 evacuated the Emporium as a precaution, while Ladder crew removed the steel structure that was still on the roof with the help of the Snorkel of Squad 15A.
After 1,5 hours the street was cleared and the Emporium could reopen.
Oh. Boston had an incident where a billboard atop a Barnes and Nobles fell on a car with hundreds of Boston University students walking around. The billboard was next to the Citgo sign near Fenway Park.
