DFD would start off Friday evening with two medical assist calls. At 2016 call 3 would be a 2 car vehicle crash on interstate 40 east bound at the 413 Mile Marker. While crews were still on the second medical assist and on the interstate, DFD would be called upon again (#4) to Mountain View Detention at 2039 hours for a working fire. Crews quickly contained fire to the area of origin.
