Firefighters respond to former Carson’s buildingJanuary 24, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded early Tuesday afternoon when a water flow alarm activated at the former Carson’s store at 3875 N. Newton St.
There was no fire associated with the 12:47 p.m. alarm, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang.
The department store in the Germantown Shopping Center closed late last summer. In late December, Germantown owner Regency Properties announced a T.J. Maxx will open in part of the former Carson’s space in September 2019.
Hochgesang said a contractor working in the building snagged a cable wrapped around a sprinkler pipe with a lift, breaking the water pipe.
Water was discharged onto the gutted store’s floor and some migrated into the Harbor Freight store to the north at 3885 N. Newton St., damaging some merchandise, Hochgesang said.
Three trucks and 21 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
The Jasper Police Department assisted.
