The Valley Regional Fire Authority responded to 193 calls for service between May 26 and June 1, among them the following:
Aid call: 12:19 p.m., (Lea Hill). After firefighters evaluated a woman who'd been complaining of weakness after running out of her medication, a private ambulance transported her to a local hospital.
Illegal burn: 3:55 p.m., (South Auburn). Valley Com dispatched firefighters to an illegal burn in the northwest corner of the fireworks lot near Muckleshoot Casino, where a King County Sheriff's deputy had just found an unattended fire near bushes and tall grass. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire with a booster line.
Automatic fire alarm: 2:08 p.m., (Auburn). Valley Com dispatched firefighters to MultiCare Auburn Medical Center (MAMC), where an automatic fire alarm was doing its stuff. Firefighters arrived to find that two smoke heads on the first and third floors had activated. Although there was no smoke in the building, both smoke heads got a scrubbing.
Aid call: 11:36 a.m., (Algona). After firefighters treated an Algona senior citizen who had fallen and sustained moderate injuries, including a significant bump to the head, a private ambulance transported her to MAMC for more evaluation, treatment and monitoring.
Minor fire: 6:46 a.m., (Auburn). Firefighters killed a grease fire in an electric range, ensured that there was no extension of the fire into the kitchen cabinets or structure and blew the smoke from the home.
Aid call: 4:34 p.m., (Lakeland Hills). Firefighters treated an older woman who had fallen and cut her head, before a private ambulance transported her to a local hospital.
Aid call: 7:46 p.m. (Pacific). Firefighters and King County Medics evaluated a man who was bleeding, and a private ambulance drove him to Good Samaritan.
