False Report Sends Erie Firefighters to Mill Creek Tube

Posted: Updated:
Erie firefighters rushed to the Mill Creek Tube tonight, for a potential rescue.  But in the end, it turned out to be a  false alarm.

The call came in around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, for a report of two people inside of the Mill Creek Tube near Alfee's Pizza.  Firefighters spent an hour searching that tunnel, but they eventually determined that no one was inside.

Two weeks ago, two young boys were swept through this tunnel into the bay.  So firefighters checked the tunnel as a precaution.
