For the period of March 3 to 16, the Niagara Falls Fire Department responded to 246 calls. The total number of service calls for 2014 to date is 1,266.

• FIRE: On March 5, Engine 4 was dispatched at 9:03 p.m. to a vehicle fire in the 600 block of Ashland Avenue. Upon arrival, the crew consisting of Capt. Keith Stahlman and Firefighters Tom Tedesco, Jeremiah Traver, and Michael Dorsey, discovered a 1994 Cadillac with its engine compartment completely involved in fire. The cause was a mechanical malfunction. Damage was estimated at $4,000.

• ACCIDENT: On March 9, Truck 2 and Engine 7 were sent at 4:51 a.m. to the intersection of 56th Street and Niagara Falls Boulevard for a motor vehicle accident with serious injuries. The truck crew had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate one victim from the wreck. That victim died a short time later. Two other injured parties were treated at the scene and transported to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center for further evaluation. 

• INCIDENT: On March 10, Engine 7 and Truck 2 responded at 9:33 a.m. to the 500 block of 78th Street to investigate a report of a carbon monoxide detector activation in a home. Using CO measurement meters, firefighters found dangerous levels of 600 parts per million in the basement and 200 parts per million on the first floor of the residence. The flue from the furnace, which had been accidentally pulled out of the chimney, was discovered to be the source of the problem.
