Firefighters respond to alarmsApril 7, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to an alarm activation early Sunday at a north side apartment complex and another Monday afternoon at a shopping center.
Smoke alarms were sounding at 4030 Manor Drive but there was no smoke or fire associated with the 5:56 a.m. callout Sunday, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang. Instead, he added, the alarm was chalked up to a bad battery after investigation.
Three trucks and 29 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
Then, at 2:15 p.m., an alarm was logged in the Southgate Shopping Center, 195 U.S. 231.
Hochgesang said technicians failed to notify the alarm company before working on the system.
Two trucks and 18 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
