E-cigarette triggers health center fire alarmJuly 5, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to an alarm Wednesday afternoon at Cathedral Health Care Center, 520 W. Ninth St.
There was no fire associated with the 3:01 p.m. callout, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang. Instead, he said, a resident’s use of an electronic cigarette triggered the system.
Three trucks and 18 firefighters were on the scene 19 minutes.
Then, at 4:05 a.m. Friday, firefighters went to the Hampton Inn, 355 Third Ave., after an alarm sounded.
Hochgesang said dust in a laundry room detector was the root cause of that call.
Three firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
