It was a busy stretch for emergency crews in Canton Thursday night.
At approximately 9 p.m., members of the town of Canton Volunteer Fire and EMS Department responded to 3-unit apartment building on River Street at Bridge Street after light smoke and a burning odor were reported, fire officials said. Engines 3, 4, and 6. Ladder 2, Car 10 (ambulance) and fire police responded and most were on scene about 45 minutes.
Moderate carbon monoxide levels were found and firefighters determined the cause was a furnace malfunction. Fire officials said someone had cleared the fire hydrant, providing good access to it. There were no injuries or damages.
While still on that call, fire police and the ambulance crew, along with officers from the Canton Police Department, responded to Route 44 and East Hill Road for a report of a "vehicle vs. pedestrian."
Police said they later determined that a passenger in the truck had actually gotten out of the vehicle and was on the ground, leaving another motorist to believe he was hit. The person declined medical transport.
