From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Units of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department were called to an apartment complex Tuesday and to a manufacturing facility early today.

There were no active fires at either location.

The first call, at 3:04 p.m. Tuesday, sent firefighters to the Lofts at St. Joseph’s, 1900 Medical Arts Drive.

The department fire investigator said a resident had overcooked microwave popcorn, triggering an alarm.

Three trucks and six firefighters were on the scene 30 minutes.

Then, at 4:20 a.m. today, the department was called to an alarm activation at OFS Brands’ Plant No. 5, 210 W. Ninth St.

The activation was attributed to a system malfunction and there was no fire, according to Smith.

Five trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
