From Local Sources
JASPER — Members of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department fielded calls early this week involving a pump and a stove.
The first call, at 8:16 p.m. Monday, sent the department to the Mark and Bonnie Arvin residence at 818 E. 15th St.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said the home’s sump pump motor burned out but no action needed to be taken.
Four trucks and 13 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
Then, at 8:19 p.m. Tuesday, the department was called to an alarm activation at the Sunset Apartments, 675 Giesler Road.
There was no fire, according to Hochgesang. Instead, he added, food boiled over on a stove top, creating some smoke.
Firefighters set up an exhaust fan for a short time to ventilate the unit.
Two trucks and 21 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
