Jasper firefighters tackle multiple runsMay 19, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department made two weekend runs and responded to a third callout Monday.
None involved fires.
The first callout, at 8:52 p.m. Friday, was to the Medical Arts Building, 800 W. Ninth St.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said a faulty smoke detector was found in a rooftop air make-up unit. Maintenance personnel corrected the issue and the alarm system was successfully reset.
Three trucks and 28 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
Then, at 5:13 p.m. Sunday, the department was notified of an activated smoke alarm at the Russell and Jana Clayton residence at 192 Macy Court.
Hochgesang said the cause was a bad smoke detector that the homeowner was to replace.
Three trucks and 23 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Finally, at 11:54 a.m. Monday, a passerby reported possible smoke coming from the Logan Kern residence at 1584 Division Road.
What was initially thought to be light smoke was determined to have been steam rising from the wet roof after the sun briefly appeared, according to Hochgesang.
Five trucks and 32 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
