FOUR DEPARTMENTS RESPOND TO FIELD FIRE NORTH OF CARLYLE

A field fire Tuesday, on Fischer road about five miles north of Carlyle and east of Route 127, had four local fire departments alerted. According to Keyesport Fire Chief Jim Golder, the fire was reported about 2:15 Tuesday afternoon after someone who was clearing brush with a bush-hog allegedly accidentally set the fire. The windy conditions help to spread the fire. Keyesport, Wheatfield, Carlyle, and Beckemeyer Fire Departments were called. The Beckemeyer Department was recalled before reaching the field. According to Golder, about ten acres of corn stubble was burned but no damage was estimated from the fire.  Firemen were on the scene for approximately two hours.


FIRE AT PETERSON SPRING

Greenville Firefighters were paged at 3:23 this morning to a report of a structure fire at the Peterson Spring Company on Peterson Drive.   According to the fire report, the cause of the fire is believed to be ashes from a chimney fire late Tuesday afternoon which caught the roof on fire.  Damages are estimated at $10,000.00.  Mulberry Grove and Smithboro Firefighters were paged for mutual aid with tankers and manpower.  No injuries were reported and firefighters were on the scene for about an hour and a half.
