     The Mount Pleasant Fire Department responded to a house fire on the morning of July 4. Firefighters were able to save the house but it was heavily damaged by smoke and fire. No one was living at the house at the time. Cause of the fire is undetermined. Photos by Jerry Schafer.

     Typically, volunteer departments are struggling to find good members. I have heard of several ambulance services that are in danger of closing or at least leaving gaps in the coverage they offer. This will likely become an issue for the fire departments as well if we don’t do something to correct this.

     Battle Creek Fire and Norfolk Fire were called out to a house fire at 837 Rd south west of Norfolk early Saturday morning. Upon arrival fire crews found a house fully engulfed. Both departments worked the fire for several hours.
