Jasper firefighters tackle runsDecember 12, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department answered a trio of fire calls Tuesday, none of them serious.
The first, at 4:28 p.m., involved a possible fire at the Donald Vonderheide residence at 801 E. 15th St.
There was no fire, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang. Instead, he added, burnt food on the stove triggered an alarm.
Four trucks and 19 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
Then, at 6:58 p.m., an alarm activated at Home Depot, 4250 Newton St. That call was canceled while the department was still en route when it was determined it was a false alarm linked to recent work on the system.
Finally, at 11:34 p.m., the department was sent to an alarm activation at the Holiday Inn Express, 2000 Hospitality Drive.
Once again, Hochgesang said, there was no fire. Instead, a guest vaping on the third floor set off the alarm system.
Two trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
