Simultaneous Blazes Cause Firemen To Split Forces

A pair of nearly simultaneous emergency calls had the Scotland County Fire Department running in different directions on Monday, April 10th.

Just two minutes after a fire was reported at Arbela Wood Products at 4:03 p.m., the first fire truck was rolling en route to the emergency west of Memphis. As the second and third trucks started to roll, the fire department was paged to a second fire, this one located north of Memphis off of Route H.

Fire officials quickly split the responding forces, sending four firemen and two trucks to douse a grass fire reported by Ray Howard north of his residence.

Four fire trucks and a dozen firemen answered the call at the Arbela sawmill, where the sawdust pile had caught fire.

Both fires were brought under control quickly with minimal damage. The grass fire burned roughly two acres of ground.

Less than a week earlier the fire department had also found itself pulled in two directions.

At 6:25 p.m. on April 5th a grass fire was reported at the Fox property off of Route D. As the firemen were wrapping up on that scene, another grass fire was reported at 6:51 at the Davis property on Route U. Both blazes were brought under control without incident.
