HVFD tends to 2 scenes
Two sirens called the Holyoke Volunteer Fire Department into action over the weekend. A vehicle fire Saturday, March 29 on Highway 6 near Phillips County Road 61, 11 miles east of Holyoke, was the reason behind the 4:35 p.m. siren Saturday afternoon. HVFD assisted Amherst FD with a semi that was hauling hay that had caught fire.
The second siren sounded Sunday, March 30 at 4:45 p.m. for a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Johnson Street and Baxter Avenue. Extrication was needed on one of the vehicles. HVFD assisted EMTs.
