Cigarette ignites restaurant landscapingJune 26, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to a fast food restaurant and a manufacturing facility Thursday.
The first call, at 3:03 p.m., was to the report of landscaping on fire at the Burger King at 3711 Newton St.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said a discarded cigarette ignited landscaping in a parking lot island. Damage was limited to the lost mulch, he added.
Two trucks and 18 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Then, at 9:19 p.m., the department responded to an alarm activation at Kimball Furniture Plant No. 2, 1620 Cherry St.
Hochgesang said it appeared a fluctuation in water pressure triggered the alarm. Workers successfully reset the system with no further issues.
Five trucks and 23 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
