Busy day for Vernon Fire

To say that Vernon Fire Rescue had a busy day is a bit of an understatement. 

The first call came at 5:30 a.m., with a house fire on Highway 97 across from Vernon Jubilee Hospital, and the calls kept coming from there. 

In the span of just 11 hours crews, were called out eight times for:

  • Three medical back up calls.
  • Two fire alarms
  • One carbon monoxide alarm 
  • One motor vehicle incident

And, they had to return to the house on Highway 97 to put out hotspots.

However, Christmas Day was even busier. Crews responded to 14 calls, ranging from motor vehicle incidents to smoke alarms.
