ST. ANTHONY — The St. Anthony Volunteer Fire Department provided an assist when strong winds caused multiple power outages Saturday.

The county’s 911 log had at least a dozen weather-related calls entered Saturday.

Fire Chief Scott Uebelhor said the Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative was overloaded with calls when the department was called at 11 a.m. to the report of downed lines in the 5400 block of South Club Road.

The department stood by at the scene for almost two hours until the lines could be repaired.

Two trucks and 15 firefighters responded.
