Firefighters respond to errant alarmsDecember 4, 2018
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Units of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department answered two recent alarms, but neither involved a fire.
The first, at 9:50 a.m. Saturday, sent trucks to MasterBrand Cabinets’ facility at 1008 N. Geiger St.
A problem with a wood waste grinder two days prior had resulted in a brief fire run and it was determined Saturday’s alarm resulted as wires were being pulled and repairs made after that incident, according to Assistant Chief Glen Kissling.
Three trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes Saturday.
Then, at 12:44 p.m. Monday, an alarm activated at OFS Brands’ Plant No. 4 at 106 W. 10th St.
Fire Chief Scott Patberg said personnel were addressing recent alarm systems issues and Monday’s activation was confirmed to be a false alarm just as the first truck was starting to roll from the station.
