From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Units of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a possible structure fire late Tuesday afternoon.
The 5:51 p.m. callout sent firefighters to a mobile home at 416 E. Second Ave., according to department fire investigator John C. Smith.
As units were arriving, Smith said, the landlord, Melody Meyers, Huntingburg, was able to report from the scene that there was no fire.
Smith said the occupants, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Faucett, had been cooking and smoke triggered an alarm.
Two trucks came to the scene and another three were on standby at the station. Eleven firefighters were at the location for 15 minutes.
Earlier in the week, at 1:03 p.m. Monday, the department was called to the report of a carbon monoxide activation at a Friendship Village apartment.
Assistant Chief Glen Kissling said the call turned out to involve a detector testing issue. Complex maintenance staff assisted by replacing the battery in the unit.
Two trucks and 10 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
Going into the weekend, at 5 a.m. Friday, the department was called to an alarm activation at The Lofts at St. Joseph’s, 1900 Medical Arts Drive.
That callout resulted when an apartment occupant inadvertently overcooked food, Kissling said.
There was no damage.
Four trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
