Storm Related Calls Continue into Sunday

Oct 30th – Monroe Fire Company was dispatched to two building fire assignments Sunday morning.

The first was dispatched at 06:24 as a furnace fire in the 300 block of Whiskey Springs RD.  Tanker 25 was due on the first alarm assisgnment and was committed at the scene until 10:17.

At 08:48, Headquarters dispatched a first alarm building fire for the 700 block of Oak Hill DR in White Rock Acres.  Responding crews were forced to detour off Kuhn RD due to storm damage; however, crews found there was no actual fire in the chimney, rather it was a problem with the damper.  The box was placed available at 09:40.

Crews were called back to White Rock Acres at 18:29 for a CO Detector activation in the 600 block of Spring LN.  Crews cleared that incident at 19:01.

Another call was dispatched at 19:36 hours for a transformer explosion in the area of Horick DR and Caboose LN, also in the White Rock Acres development.  C125 arrived on scene and confirmed dispatch.  Fire crews secured the area and reported to pole number of the power company.  Units returned at 19:47 hours.
