The Brenham Fire Department responded to eight calls over the weekend, four each on Saturday and Sunday.

Just past 3 p.m. Saturday, the department received a report of a crash in the 2700 block of Highway 36 South.  However, it was cancelled enroute to the location.

At roughly 4:15 p.m., firefighters were dispatched to a crash in the 200 block of Highway 290 West.  There, they found a two-vehicle accident, but were released from the scene by the Brenham Police Department.

The department then received two alarm calls, one just before 4:30 p.m. in the 4600 block of Old Independence Road, and the other at 7:45 p.m. in the 300 block of East Lubbock Street.  The alarms at both homes were determined to be going off due to a malfunction. 

Shortly after 7 a.m. Sunday, units were dispatched for mutual aid with the Latium Volunteer Fire Department for a crash with entrapment on FM 389 at FM 2502.  At the scene, firefighters found a two-vehicle accident.  The Brenham Fire Department removed the passenger-side door of the vehicle and assisted EMS with the patient before being released from the scene by the Latium department.  The patient was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries. 

At 12:15 p.m., BFD members were sent out for a fire alarm at Silversage Assisted Living, 1121 Prairie Lea Street.  They found that the alarm was going off due to cooking and helped reset the alarm system.

Just after 5 p.m., firefighters were called out to a crash in the 1100 block of North Park Street.  They discovered a two-vehicle accident and provided traffic control at the scene while the vehicles were removed from the roadway.  Once the vehicles were gone, the department returned to service.

Approaching 5:30 p.m., units were dispatched to the 2400 block of Airline Drive for a report of a power line down with an active fire.  They arrived and stood by until the City of Brenham Electric Department could make the location.  Firefighters made sure the area was safe around where the live electrical line was down.  Once electric crews were on scene, firefighters returned to the station.
