JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to a water flow alarm this morning at the Walmart Supercenter, 4040 N. Newton St.
There was no fire associated with the 7:28 a.m. alarm, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang. Instead, he added, there was a faulty alarm involving a sprinkler line in the garden center portion of the store.
Three trucks and 18 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
At 1:50 p.m. Sunday, the department was called to the Village Court Apartments at 504 Village Court after a resident detected smoke.
Firefighters found that a hot water heater had shorted. The department turned off the breaker to the unit until the problem could be addressed by maintenance staff.
Three trucks and 23 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
