Firemen called to loader fire Sunday PDF Print E-mail
Members of the Imperial Volunteer Fire Department were called to a loader fire in a dirt pit below Enders Dam Sunday afternoon. A loader being operated by Mike Fanning caught on fire, presumably due to an electrical problem. Fanning said he began feeling hot and looked down behind and saw the loader was on fire. He and a pair of others there with him were able to extinguish the fire before firemen arrived by throwing mud and water on the flames. The firemen applied a layer of foam to the fire area to insure it was out. (Republican photo)
