10/31 - Kuhl Hose was dispatched for an
outside fire just after 10 Saturday night. There was no
one home at the time of the fire and a passerby called 911.
Shortly after the dispatch was upgraded to a barn fire. Mutual
Aid was dispatched to assist. On arrival 680 found a barn
structure heavily involved in fire and partially collapsed.
With no exposures and the size of the structure mutual aid was
cancelled except for Tender 176 from Wattsburg.
683 arrived stretched a 1 3/4" line and
began to contain the fire. Crews from 682 & 685 arrived and
assisted. The fire was under control in a short time.
Some animals in the barn were lost in the fire. Crews cleared
the scene within an hour.
