Engine 151 with Chief 15 arrived on the scene to find an incident involving a tractor-trailer, cable and electric lines, and a utility truck with a subject injured and stuck in the truck's bucket. Chief 15 established command. Command held Engine 151, Squad 10, Engine 143, Ambulance 149, and Chief 10. SMECO Crews arrived on the scene at the same time as Engine 151.
