At about 1740 hrs Jim Ned Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to the report of thick smoke just east of Hwy 83 and south of CR 175. By the luck of the draw it was our weekly meeting night and we were able to respond with four, fully manned, brush trucks.
Shortly after 5pm Jim Ned VFD personnel were dispatched to a fire near the east end of CR 154, Tuscola. Upon arrival the fire had spread from a work area into a grove of cedar trees. The fire was extinguished within an hour.
Shortly after 8:00 pm this morning Jim Ned VFD was dispatched to a vehicle fire on N/B Hwy 84 north of the Y. Luckily the fire did not spread to the adjacent field and was brought under control in a relatively short period of time.
Through the kindness of a local resident, members of Jim Ned, Buffalo Gap, Moro, Trent, and Potosi volunteer fire departments were offered the opportunity to obtain some hands on fire training.BEFORE DURING During AFTER
