“STAY ALIVE FROM EDUCATION” PROGRAM

This Friday, the “Stay Alive From Education” program (or S.A.F.E.) will be coming to Greenville High School.  Superintendent Jeff Strieker said they are very much looking forward to having a professional presenting group come to the high school Friday, at 9:00 a.m.  They will be addressing the entire high school student body about potential consequences and the high risk decisions that happen behind the wheel.  We all know a lot of distractions occur while driving and these distractions and decisions affect the lives of kids.  Strieker said they are very hopeful this program will prove beneficial to students, have an impact, save lives, and hopefully keep kids safe on the roads.  If you have any questions regarding the program, visit their website at www.safeprogram.com.

STRUCTURE FIRE SOUTH OF MULBERRY GROVE

Firefighters from three local departments battled a shed and mobile home fire Tuesday morning at the Cody Belcher residence south of Mulberry Grove on County Road 700N in Fayette County.  Mulberry Grove Firefighters were dispatched at 4:32 Tuesday morning.  According to Mulberry Grove Fire Chief Dwight Volkmar, the cause of the fire was a heat lamp in a small storage shed.  The heat lamp ignited the storage shed which was completely destroyed.  The mobile home was approximately four feet from the shed and the fire quickly spread to the mobile home which suffered extensive damage along one wall and to the ceiling and attic.  An SUV parked close to the shed was totally destroyed and a pickup truck was partially damaged.  Keyesport and Greenville Firefighters provided mutual aid with tankers and manpower.  There were no injuries and firefighters were on the scene about three hours.
