Huntingburg firefighters answer 2 alarms

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Units of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department responded to callouts Monday and Tuesday.

The first call, at 7:03 p.m. Monday, was a smoke alarm activation at the Michael Dribble residence at 320 N. Chestnut St., according to Department Fire Investigator John C. Smith.

The first-arriving firefighters determined there was dust accumulation in the residential smoke alarm.

One truck and 10 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.

Then, at 6:27 a.m. Tuesday, a carbon monoxide detector activated at the Allen Frease residence at 707 E. First Ave.

There was no buildup of the gas detected and the activation may have been due to the sensor’s age.

Two firefighters and one truck were on the scene 15 minutes.
