Eldred Twp.

Wire down. Warren-based state police responded to the parking lot at Grand Valley Volunteer Fire Department at 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 8. According to police, a presumably large truck with dual tires attempted to exit the north driveway at the fire department and drove under a power line that stretched from a utility pole to the north side of the building. The vehicle caught the wire and pulled it from the side of the building. Police said the side of the building received moderate burn damage as a result. Police said it is presumed that the truck then backed up and drove around to the south driveway of the building, exited the parking lot and fled north on Route 27.
