The following are some highlights:

– At 6:50 a.m. May 25, GVFD responded to a report of power lines down on Broadview Avenue. Firefighters found a large branch that had broken off a tree and landed on the homeowner’s cable line, and they used chainsaws to cut the limb away. The utility company was notified.

– At 9:39 a.m. May 25, GVFD responded to a structure fire on Berryman Street. No smoke or flame was visible and occupants were outside. They told firefighters a laundry basket next to a faulty wall heater had caught fire and that an occupant, after being awakened by the smell of smoke, removed the basket. Fire personnel verified fire had not extended to other parts of the home, disconnected the faulty appliance and strongly advised the occupants to install smoke detectors.

– At 3:55 p.m. May 25, GVFD responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian on South Church Street. Firefighters found the victim to have multiple abrasions and a possible skeletal injury and immobilized the person with splints and a backboard to prevent further injury. The patient was transported by ambulance to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.

– At 2:23 p.m. May 26, GVFD responded to a stabbing victim on East Main Street. After Grass Valley police secured the scene, firefighters bandaged both hands of the person with stab wounds. An ambulance transported the person to SNMH. Fire units sanitized the scene prior to leaving.

– At 12 a.m. May 27, GVFD responded to a vegetation fire on Hughes Road. Firefighters found a 10-foot-by-10-foot roadside grass fire that had been largely extinguished by local people. They mopped up hot spots with foam and investigated the cause and origin.

– At 7:45 a.m. May 28, GVFD responded to a report of a self-inflicted stab wound to the stomach near Glasson Way. Firefighters and Sierra Nevada Ambulance personnel treated the patient for trauma and summoned an air ambulance for transport to the regional trauma center due to the severity of the wound.
