Three firefighters were on their way to battle an abandoned house fire when their fire engine turned over onto a guardrail. It happened on Little Coal River Road in Alum Creek around 1:30 a.m. The Davis Creek volunteer firefighters were heading to a fire at an abandoned trailer on Clay Lane to assist the Alum Creek Volunteer Fire Department, fire officials said Tuesday morning. Fire crews say the truck went too close to the edge of the road and turned over onto a guardrail. A couple hours later, the guardrail collapsed and the truck flipped over a small embankment. No one was inside the truck when it flipped over, according to fire officials. No firefighters were injured in the accident. Crews say the firetruck is a total loss.
