    Had an 911 call at 3:45 this morning. Here's a copy of my report.

    Monday, June 04, 2007. 911 called out Sundown Fire Dept for a transformer fire at Norm's RV Park on Hwy 171, north of Leesville. Safety Officer (Sundown 3) went to station (station 23) and readied all vehicles (Sundown pumper 1 and tanker 3). Sundown Sub-station (station 23A) (Empire Point pumper 1) prepared for action. Asst Chief went to scene to access the situation and declared said situation code 4 (under control). The call-out was 10-22'd (cancelled) after 15 minutes.

    Jeffrey Wimberly, SD3, Safety Officer, SVFD.

    Gunna have a very sunny day here in the greater Phoenix area, it should reach 108 in most parts and up to 110 around Buckeye and a few other outlying towns. They say a "cold front" is moving in so tomorrow should be about 10 degrees cooler. Man, I'm looking for my woollies if it gets that cold....:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Morning. Got upgraded to "big seats" on flight to Phoenix Thursday AM. EZDays, you live near Phoenix? I will be at Mesa Bass Pro Shops Grand Opening Thursday afternoon, Friday and Saturday. If so, come by for a visit. Pro Mariner Rep in the Marine Dept. Hot here as mid 90's all week. Got to mow grass [it turned green].

    Jeffrey, pictures of the houses tha burned the other day. One went up real fast and set the other on fire. Damaged the others next to them. Chemicals on the back deck is thought to have accelorated the fire.


    Have a good one.

    WoW!!!! jawdrop

    That's scary and amazing at the same time.... How really destructive a huge bad fire is.......

    I wonder if it was a propane grille out on the deck.... Our local fire company always tells us to store (and use) them things on the "Yard" side of the deck - away from the house......

    Just because of this sort of thing....... The house catches fire... and the tank's hose melts and feeds the fire.. or the tank explodes!! :eek::eek:

    My propane grille is out in the yard, away from my trailer. I don't use it much for cooking anymore, but as a painting platform for my modelling.

    ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!! 61

    7:30 AM breakfast in the park across the street. Legislators [to nice ladies, wife says one is my girlfriend [​IMG] and she's joking.
    Found three BIG fireant nests along sidewalk on park side. Checked the yard here and none so far. Maybe the grandulars I broadcast this spring is working. Lowes screwed up on that one last fall. $6 per bag and Walmart was selling it on sale for $20 per bag. I stocked up. It is some kind of preventive.
    Grass to mow for a change. We had 3 tenths of rain last night late. Squash and cucumbers are producing. Tomatoes growing. Train time too. Got to pack for EARLY flight to Phoenix tomorrow [glad I got BIG seats].

    A lot of good men died today in WWII.
