  • Two, 2-Vehicle Accidents: (Auburn) On Thursday, June 13th at 9:05 a.m., VRFA firefighters responded to a report of a vehicle accident involving two vehicles.

  • Hazardous Tree: (Auburn) On Saturday, June 15th, at 2:43 p.m., VRFA firefighters responded to a residence with a very large tree that had developed a crack. Firefighters arrived and determined the tree was a threat to the neighboring home, so they evacuated the neighbor’s house.

Firefighters advised the residents to maintain the evacuation area until the tree had been removed by a professional tree service.
