Holiday spotlight ignites landscapingJanuary 2, 2020
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Units of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a possible structure fire late Monday afternoon.
Department Fire Investigator John C. Smith said a neighbor reported the possible fire at the Doris Tretter residence, 706 Orchard Road, at 5:18 p.m.
Firefighters arrived and determined no structure was involved. Instead, Smith said, a spotlight used for holiday lighting had dried out and ignited landscaping that was several feet from a structure.
The department used a water extinguisher to douse the fire and disconnected the spotlight from its power supply.
There was no damage.
Three trucks and 16 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
The Huntingburg Police Department and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
