Jasper firefighters respond to alarmsApril 30, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — A call to a south-side hotel Monday marked the third time in recent days that members of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded to alarms.
An alarm activation at 6:41 a.m. Monday sent the department to the Holiday Inn Express, 2000 Hospitality Drive.
There was no fire, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang. Instead, he added, smoke from overcooked bacon triggered the alarm.
Three trucks and 17 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
At 8:39 a.m. Sunday the department responded to an alarm at Brookside Village Senior Living Community, 1111 Church Ave.
Similarly, that run owed to smoke from cooking activity in the kitchen. The smoke vented itself, Hochgesang said.
Two trucks and 18 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
Finally, at 11:48 a.m. Thursday, a drop in water pressure set off a sprinkler alarm at Holiday Foods, 847 Third Ave.
Two trucks and 21 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
