HUNTINGBURG — Units of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department responded to two alarm activations Friday morning.

Both were false alarms with no reasons discovered for the activations, according to department Fire Investigator John C. Smith.

The first call, at 9 a.m., sent the department to the Bonnie Schmett residence at 938 W. Sixth St. The next call, at about 10:45 a.m., was to A Kid’s Place daycare at 505 E. First St.

Smith said the daycare was evacuated as a precaution during the call.

Six firefighters and multiple trucks were on the scene of each run, spending about 30 minutes at each location.

The department was also on standby for about 20 minutes at 6:50 a.m. Friday when a gas line was compromised at a business location near the downtown.
