JASPER — Members of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department answered Tuesday alarms at an apartment complex, at independent-living villas and at a hospital.
The first call, at 11:06 a.m., sent firefighters to the Jasper Lofts, 1300 Dewey St.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said an alarm company was working on the system and had notified the monitoring company, but residents heard audible alarms during the work and called 911.
One truck and 18 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
Then, at 6:11 p.m., an alarm activated at The Villas at St. Charles, 3187 Villa Way.
Hochgesang said that call involved food being cooked on a stove with no damage.
Three trucks and 26 firefighters were on the scene 25 minutes.
Finally, at 7:28 p.m., the department was called to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, 800 W. Ninth St.
There was no fire, Hochgesang said. Instead, he added, firefighters found a faulty smoke detector in a power plant tunnel.
Four trucks were on the scene 30 minutes.
