Fire Damages Texico Home; Odin and Salem Respond to Calls
Odin Firemen were called to a report of smoke in a house at 45-20 West Line Road in rural Odin Saturday night. Fire personnel could not find the source of the smoke or the smell. Fire Chief Greg Smith says after checking all the appliances, it was determined that the furnace was in fault mode and would not shut off. The power was shut off to the home as a precaution.
Salem Firemen were called out to a damaged gas riser in the Salem Mobile Home Park. The riser was in an area where a trailer had been removed and apparently hit by a vehicle that did not report the accident. Natural gas was pouring out of the ruptured line until Liberty Gas crews arrived on the scene and shut off the gas to the riser.
