Where There’s Smoke…

Fire-EMS

It was a flirtation with disaster – that’s how Fire Marshal Kathy Clay describes an incident at an apartment complex on Gregory Lane in Jackson Friday.  Clay says fire units responded to a call of a smoke alarm going off and found the apartment filled with smoke when they arrived and the residents not home. She says the residents were in progress of moving and had stacked some of their household goods near the electric range.  She says somehow, one of the burners had been left on, on high and over time had melted some plastic material.  She says the plastic dropped onto the burner and made enough smoke to activate the smoke alarm alerting the alarm company who called in the fire department.  Clay says firefighters arrived to find the apartment filled with smoke, but no fire.  They ventilated the apartment after assuring the stove was off. Clay says a second fire call over the weekend was to a control burn which was being conducted without having been called in.  Clay reminds residents that announcing their intent to burn to the local dispatcher is needed to prevent mobilizing the fire department for no reason.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]

  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
