[ARCHIVED] DFD assisted residents at 460 Parker Rd. after creek rises

The Danville Fire Department was dispatched to 460 Parker Road for water backing up into the trailer park from a nearby creek. Engine 2 arrived at 9:50 pm and found several trailers that were threatened by slow rising water. The DFD went residence to residence checking on occupants. Several families were moved out of the area due to the potential of the water level increasing. The Red Cross was contacted and are assisting three people. Seven others will be staying with friends or family overnight.
The rising water has not entered or damaged any trailers at this time. Moving occupants was done as a precaution. No injuries were reported. The DFD cleared at 11:00 pm.
