FIRE AT SMURFT-STONE BUILDING IN HIGHLAND

Highland Firefighters responded Monday, at 6:28 p.m., to a fire alarm at the Smurft Stone building on Zschokke Street in Highland.  According to Fire Chief Kerry Federer, employees had extinguished the fire when firefighters arrived.  The fire was in a circuit box and damage was limited to burned wires and smoke in the building.  Employees evacuated the building and firefighters checked to be sure the fire had not spread to any other area.  The cause was determined to be electrical and may have been due to old wiring.  No injuries were reported and firefighters were on the scene about fifteen minutes.


DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS THIS WEEKEND

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, November 6 and that means it is time to “Fall Back.”  Be sure you set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday, November 5.  Many digital clocks and devices are automatically programmed to adjust this for you, so consult your clock or device manual to see whether you need to manually change it. Fire departments recommend that when you change your clocks, you also change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
