Fire Chief Joseph Lingel reported that the department responded to at least six calls involving trees striking homes. He also confirmed that most service calls Monday involved down wires and trees in the wires. A reported building fire turned out to be a transformer fire, he added, and the department also handled two medical aid calls during the storm. No serious injuries were reported in Lynnfield in connection with Hurricane Sandy.
Elsewhere, a falling tree reportedly struck a mail truck near Pillings Pond Road on Monday, leaving its driver uninjured. Power was restored to many residents by Tuesday, with RMLD reporting that most streets should see their electricity back on Wednesday, with a few individual addresses more likely to wait until Thursday.
