South Salem firefighters were once again out on Route 35 for a rolled over vehicle. Just after 9:30pm, on Tuesday, May 30th, firefighters were dispatched to a reported rolled over vehicle that was smoking, in the area of the firehouse. Car 2451 arrived on scene and advised that a single vehicle was on its side, smoking, with the lone occupant out and being evaluated by the Westchester EMS Medic. All Rescue 21 and Engine 166 had to do was to pull out of the firehouse and they were on scene. Rescue 21 crew secured the vehicle and stemmed the flow of fluids, while the crew from Engine 166 stood by ready to suppress any fire as a precaution. Additionally thermal imaging cameras were used to check the area to confirm that no one else had been in the vehicle and no potential fires were about to start due to vehicle debris spread throughout the area.

Route 35 was shut down and traffic was diverted around Spring Street South for the duration of the incident. Firefighters operated for approximately two hours before returning to service.
