Firefighters respond to electric pole reportMay 29, 2020
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — The Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department responded Thursday night when a passerby reported a possible electric pole on fire west of Huntingburg.
The 8:08 p.m. callout sent firefighters to the 6000 block of County Road 500W but units were unable to find any issues, according to Assistant Chief Glen Kissling. A VECTREN substation is at the location so it was possible that a weather event had resulted in some arcing.
Firefighters shared the report with the electric provider for further investigation.
Two trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Early Thursday, at 2:14 a.m., the department responded to an alarm activation at Crossroads Behavioral Health, 1900 Medical Arts Drive.
The department said the activation was chalked up to an alarm malfunction.
Four trucks were at the scene 20 minutes.
