Fighting the blaze

Thursday, February 26, 2004

A fire which began outside a house at the Crowder Salvage and Body Shop at Crowder brought together fire personnel from southern Scott County. At 2:25 p.m. Wednesday, the Vanduser Fire Department sought assistance from the Sikeston Department of Public Safety's fire division to assist in battling the blaze, which spread to numerous cars and filled trailers surrounding the house as well as in the house. Also assisting in fighting the fire were fire personnel and equipment Miner, Morehouse, Scott County Rural Fire District and Oran. "There was outstanding cooperation among the departments in providing needed personnel and equipment," said DPS Lt. Ken Dicus, who attributed the efforts to enabling the fire to be contained.
