From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to three recent alarm activations but none were found to involve a fire.
The first call, at 8:37 p.m. Friday, was to a residence in the 4000 block of Wilhelm Strasse.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said cooking activity had triggered a smoke alarm and there was no problem.
Three trucks and 25 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Then, at 10:13 p.m. Friday, an alarm sounded at a Jasper Group property at 305 E. 12th Ave.
Hochgesang said there had been a water main break in the general area and the resulting drop in water pressure triggered the alarm.
Four trucks and 21 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Finally, at 5:17 p.m. Monday, the department was called to Fifth Street Elementary, 401 W. Fifth St.
Hochgesang said the department identified a faulty detector that was to be repaired today.
Five trucks and 27 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
