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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
