Marshall fire dept. adds cooler onto
Kentucky fire department has installed a refrigerator on one of
its trucks with the goal of keeping firefighters hydrated.
Palma-Briensburg Fire Department Assistant Chief Todd Devine
says the cooler will hold water so firefighters can battle
flames while keeping cool. Devine says the department plans to
install more refrigerators on other trucks in the near
future. Devine says the heat of summer, when temperatures can
reach 100 degrees, and the weight of 35 to 40 pounds of
equipment take a toll on the bodies of firefighters. The Palma-Briensburg
Fire Department covers about 50 square miles in central Marshall
County. (Stock Photos; Updated: 11:15 am, Tuesday)
Marshall County suffers loss from fire
One local couple was
left with only the clothes they were wearing after their home
burned down on Phelps Road in Marshall County, right outside of
Benton. They are now turning to the community for support.
Eighteen firefighters and two fire departments worked to put the
early morning house fire out on Labor Day. The Gamble family
said they lost everything, but they are blessed to still have
each other. Rick and Wanda Gamble spent years in their home and
now their belongings are among the ash and rubble. Fortunately,
their three dogs made it out alive. Clothing, food, water and
any other household items would be appreciated. Women's
clothing: Shirts - size XXL, pant size - 18/20, shoes - size 9.
Men's clothing: Shirts - size XXL, pant size - 38/40 (34" in
length), shoes - size 12. You can donate to the Gamble family by
dropping off donations at 1003 Elm Street in Benton. (Updated:
