7/10/2015 I-90 Car Accident with fire. By Greg Forgea
        At approximately 17:30 hours the East Greenbush Fire Department was dispatched for a reported vehicle fire at mile marker 8.5 on interstate 90. Cars 3 and 4 answered the call and car 4 advised that he had a heavy column of smoke visible from the interstate. Upon arrival car 4 found a single vehicle accident and the vehicle fully involved with the lone occupant out of the vehicle requiring EMS.
        Car 3 arrived and assumed I-90 command and instructed engine 8 under the command of Captain Witko to stretch a 1-¾ attack line. Second due engine 7 under the command of Captain Benson arrived shortly after and also stretched a 1-¾ backup line. The fire was quickly extinguished and all lanes of traffic were re-opened by 18:30.
