Mutual Aid For Gas Leak in Farmville
Wed. Jun 27th 2012
On June 27th, 2012, at 10:55am, Hampden-Sydney Fire, along with Farmville Fire were dispatched to a report of a gas leak at Days Inn in the Town of Farmville. Truck 1 arrived on scene, with 102 establishing command. The building was evacuated, and a 100 meter cordon was set up around the structure, thus closing Peery Drive and Williams Street. Engine 2-2 arrived and redirected traffic on the C side of the structure, blocking Peery Drive at Crestview Drive. Suburban Propane arrived on scene to assess the situation. It was found that there was an underground leak in one of the tanks, and the only way to rectify the situation was to burn off the tanks contents. Crews remained on scene for an extended period of time due to the propane company having to go to Lynchburg to get supplies for the operation. The scene was marked under control, and all units were released of the scene at approximately 4:00pm. Thanks to Farmville Fire, Farmville Police, Farmville Public Works and Suburban Propane for their assistance.
