Firefighters make 2 Monday runsOctober 22, 2019
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Members of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department made a pair of runs Monday, one of which was linked to a round of passing morning storms.
That first call, at 10:21 a.m., involved the report of a tree smoldering after it was struck by lightning off East First Street west of County Road 75W.
Fire Chief Scott Patberg said 10 firefighters and three trucks took about 45 minutes getting to and extinguishing the fire. The department then needed the assistance of a Love Excavating tractor to extract its brush truck from the remote scene.
Then, at 9:23 p.m., the department responded to the report of a fryer grease fire at the Wendy’s restaurant at 1209 N. Main St.
Patberg said the fire was out when units arrived. The flare-up also had not set off an exhaust hood extinguishing system.
A slight haze of smoke dissipated after doors were opened.
Four trucks and 14 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
The Huntingburg Police Department assisted.
