GREENVILLE FIRE DEPARTMENT RESPONDS TO THREE CALLS SATURDAY
The Greenville Fire Department was busy Saturday, responding to three alarms. The first was shortly after 11:00 am in the 200 block of College Avenue. Someone was microwaving cookies and set the timer for too long a time. The resulting smoke set off the fire alarm. Firemen were back in service about 20 minutes later.
Firemen were called again just before noon to a gas leak on West Old National Trail. A gas oven was the cause of the problem. Firemen were back in service from this call about one hour later.
The third alarm was about 2:30 Saturday afternoon. Greenville firemen were called to Woburn Avenue where persons were burning tree limbs. The fire got away from them causing a grass fire. Firemen put out the grass fire and were back in service in about an hour and fifteen minutes.
