The apparatus of Chemical 2, of the Mount Vernon, N. Y., fire department, was recently seriously damaged when it struck against a trolley pole and was in turn crashed against a street curb. Driver Fitzgerald and six members of the crew narrowly escaped serious injury. The company was responding to an alarm for a grass fire. Fitzgerald was suspended after the accident by Fire Commissioner Havey. He stated he lost control of the machine.
