Earlier in the week, firefighters responded to a fire call at 336 Cherry Street, which turned out to be a fire in a hopper and a pile of rubbish standing next to the house. Bob Warfel (in the gray shirt) was first on scene and pulled the items away from the house and put out the flames with a fire extinguisher. A third-grader named Sariah, who was reportedly the first person to see the flames, had alerted her parents, who called it in.

After firefighters stabilized the scene, the codes department condemned the structure due to interior conditions.


Yep, fog
