Structure Fire


Minimumal Damage was done to this home due to a quick stop of the fire.


It appears that the dryer malfunctioned and caught the paper backing on the insulation on fire. 
The homeowner heard a pop and reported that the wall was on fire behind the dryer.




This vehicle fire was a total loss along with about 25 round hale bales.


This fire was believed to have started from static electricity between the plastic bed liner and a gas can which had fell over and was leaking.  The plastic bed liner compounded extinguishment of the fire as it melted down into a burning liquid.  This call was also transfered between three 911 centers due to confusion on the exact location of the call.


Yet another Car vs. building....
