Fire chief says Fairfield Township roads practically impassable

Fairfield Township Fire Chief David Downie says road conditions in Fairfield Township as of 11:15 p.m. Friday are extremely hazardous and all fire units are currently on calls or stuck due to impassable road conditions.

He also says several units including a mutual aide Medic unit from Liberty Twp have slid off the roads, and that Fairfield Twp residents will experience long delays in emergency response due to the hazardous condition, and all motorists are urged to avoid traveling in Fairfield Twp.

He says the Fairfield Township Road Department had just started treating the streets.
