The Sabetha Fire Department (SFD) responded to two separate fires this past week – a vehicle fire and garage fire.

Vehicle Fire

According to Sabetha Fire Chief Jim Johnson, at 1:39 p.m. Wednesday, May 23, the SFD was called to the backside of the Apostolic Christian village located at 515 Paramount for the report of a vehicle on fire. Upon arrival, the SFD found a 1986 Ford Bronco II –owned by Elwin and Mary Strahm – on fire, which was quickly extinguished. Johnson said the exact cause is unknown but seems to be electrical in nature. No injuries were reported.

SFD responded with three trucks and 11 firefighters. They were on scene until 2:19 p.m.

Garage Fire

According to Johnson, at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, May 29, the SFD was called to the Mike and Yvonne Althouse home located at 1004 S. 14th Street to a garage fire. Upon arrival, the SFD found the garage had filled with smoke. They extinguished the fire, which the Kansas Fire Marshal said is believed to be electrical in nature, but the exact cause remains unknown. According to Johnson, they are still waiting on the insurance adjuster. No injuries were reported at the scene.

The SFD responded with five trucks and 17 firefighters. They were on scene until 2:44 a.m.
