Firefighters respond to apartments, barJuly 9, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department were called out twice Wednesday, responding to an apartment complex and a city bar.
The first call, at 1:29 p.m., was an alarm activation at the Jasper Lofts, 1300 Dewey St.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said the activation was chalked up to a faulty detector in a fourth-floor room.
Four trucks and 26 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
Then, at 7:44 p.m., the department was called to the report of a fire at J.R.’s Bar, 23 S. Clay St.
Hochgesang said a fire started in an area behind an oven and a fryer but the owner used an extinguisher to keep the flames under control until the department arrived.
Those at the establishment successfully evacuated and were allowed to return after about 30 minutes.
Damage was estimated at about $1,000.
Five trucks and 33 firefighters responded.
