Weather-related issues bring out firefightersMarch 20, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Members of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department were called out twice in the overnight hours for weather-related issues.
The first call, at 10:36 p.m., sent units to an alarm activation at Heartland Cardiology, 440 Scott Rolen Drive.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said the issue was traced to a duct detector in a rooftop unit, and was likely weather-related.
Maintenance staff arrived, and the system was successfully reset.
One truck and 15 firefighters responded.
Then, at 3:25 a.m., the fire department was called when a tree came across power lines in the 500 block of County Road 400N.
Firefighters stood by until a Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative crew could clear the problem.
One truck and 12 firefighters were on the scene 30 minutes.
