Jasper firefighters make afternoon runsJuly 19, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Members of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to a pair of Wednesday afternoon runs.
The first, at 12:12 p.m., involved the report of a vehicle outside a business in the 400 block of U.S. 231.
There was no fire, said Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang. Instead, he added, a vehicle had overheated and steam was mistaken for smoke.
Three trucks and 26 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Then, at 4:17 p.m., the department was notified of a fire alarm activation at the Pravez and Rina Sharma residence at 3289 St. Charles St.
There was no fire, Hochgesang said. Firefighters traced the problem to a detector in a bedroom that was failing and needed to be replaced.
Five trucks and 20 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
