From Local Sources
FERDINAND — Vaping activity drew members of the Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department to a south-side hotel twice during the weekend.
The first call to the Comfort Inn, 123 Scenic Hills Court, was at 11:39 p.m. Friday and involved an alarm activation.
Fire Chief John Hoppenjans said firefighters discovered a guest was cleaning their vaping machine and that activity triggered a smoke detector.
The department cleaned the detector and reset the system.
Three trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
The Ferdinand Police Department assisted.
Then, at 10:17 a.m. Saturday, an alarm sounded again when a guest was vaping in a room.
Firefighters cleaned that detector and once again successfully reset the system.
Three trucks and 16 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
