Units arrived on the scene to find a single-vehicle collision involving an electric pole, with the occupant being freed from the wreckage by a bystander. After the collision, the vehicle caught fire.

Due to the power lines, units were staged until Southern Maryland Cooperative (SMECO) arrived. Once SMECO ensured the power was secure, Engine Tanker 2 extinguished the remaining fire before turning the scene over to the Sheriff’s Office.

The occupant of the vehicle was evaluated and released on scene.
