Two calls in two days for Cornell Fire
After some “time off” thanks to very few emergency calls in the last several months, the Cornell Area Fire Department was called back to duty with two calls over the weekend.
The first came in Saturday afternoon, March 11, when a shed was reported ablaze on County Highway EE south of Cornell. The shed, a 24x24 converted stable owned by Adam Webster, was a complete loss by the time crews arrived on scene.
“He said he went in to eat, to have a sandwich,” said Denny Klass, fire chief. “He was in there about half an hour and came out, and it was fully engulfed.”
