Sandy Hook firefighters respond to tree into home, CO alarm during storm

On Sunday, during a 16 hour stretch, Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire Department responded to 27 calls, all related to the winter storm that brought a small amount of snow but a lot of ice to the region.  All five of Newtown's companies were called on to respond to multiple calls for trees on wires, some of which led to road closures. 

There were no storm related injuries in any of the calls. 

Sandy Hook also responded to one call where a tree went into a house, and another call for a CO detector. In that latter call, the family evacuated to their car while firefighters ventilated the house. A faulty generator was moved away from the home , and the family was able to go back into their home once the machine was relocated.

Berkshire Road was closed in a few places, including at its intersections with Jordan Hill, Bennets Bridge/Grays Plan and HIgh Right. A tree that fell from the corner of Berkshire and Bennetts Bridge took down all wires and traffic lights in that intersection.
