From Local Sources

JASPER — An unattended pan left on a stove was the cause of a Wednesday afternoon callout to the city’s west side for the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department.

The 4:35 p.m. run sent the department to the Glen and Marcia Mehringer residence at 1635 W. Shelyn Drive.

A pan of eggs gave off smoke but there was no damage, according to Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang.

Firefighters set up fans to exhaust smoke.

Three trucks and 18 firefighters were on the scene 25 minutes.
