Holyoke Volunteer Fire Department responded to four sirens from July 9-16.
Sirens were blown at 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 9 for a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Gordon and Campbell streets. No extrication was needed.
Thursday, July 11 was a busy time for HVFD as they were needed at two scenes during the day. At 10:48 a.m., a tree fire was reported approximately eight miles northwest of Holyoke. Upon arrival, firefighters learned it was an unreported controlled burn.
Two hours later a grass fire was reported burning near a building four miles southeast of Holyoke. HVFD was able to put the fire out and determined that it was likely caused by sparks from a cutting torch.
At 4:25 a.m. Sunday, July 14 the siren was blown because a semi full of cattle had gone off the road into a ditch one mile east of Paoli. No extrication was needed.
