The VRFA responded to 242 calls for service between April 16 and 22, among them the following:

April 16

Aid Call: 6:58 a.m., (Pacific). Firefighters examined a woman who’d just been assaulted, and when they left, she stayed on scene with Pacific Police.

April 17

Name that stink: 6:02 p.m., (Lakeland Hills). Firefighters responding to an odor of gas in a home found a barbecue leaking propane in the garage, so they shut off the tank and aired the house.

April 18

Motor Vehicle Accident: 2:55 p.m., 900 block of A Street Southeast, (Auburn). Firefighters responding to a two-car accident treated a middle-aged man for back pain, and a VRFA aid unit transported him to MultiCare Auburn Medical Center (MAMC).

April 20

Aid call: 10:45 a.m.. (Lea Hill). Firefighters evaluated a woman who was complaining of dizziness, and a private ambulance motored her to MAMC for further evaluation and treatment.

April 21

B rush Fire: 4:51 p.m., (Auburn). VRFA Firefighters and South King Fire and Rescue responding to a brush fire along the north side of westbound Highway 18 found a slow-moving, 40-by-60-foot fire, so they broke out the hose lines and drowned the flames, but before leaving double-checked the area for any hot spots. The cause of the fire is undetermined.

April 22

House fire: 4:07 a.m., (South Auburn). Firefighters responding to a house fire found 25 percent of the building in flames. The house appeared to be vacant, though with indications of transient occupancy, so firefighters extinguished the fire and completed a thorough search. The incident is under investigation.
