Department responds to alarm triggersMay 3, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to alarms at two business locations Thursday.
Neither involved a fire, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang.
The first call, at 11:32 a.m., sent the department to the former Carson’s store at 3875 N. Newton St.
The department store in the Germantown Shopping Center closed late last summer and work is progressing to turn part of the space into a T.J. Maxx that will open later this year.
Hochgesang said a worker broke off a sprinkler line and triggered the alarm. The line has since been repaired.
Two trucks and 16 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Then, at 2:39 p.m., the department was called to Jasper Engines & Transmissions, 815 Wernsing Road.
Hochgesang said a worker bumped a duct detector and triggered an alarm.
Three trucks and 26 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
