Firefighters put out fire in own fire station

Chief Tom Dietrich says he had just returned from a meeting with
the fire marshal on Monday and was sitting in his car just outside
the station when he received a call from someone who stated that
the fire department was on fire.

He says he thought it was a joke.

It wasn't.

A 911 call was received about 3:20 p.m., but the fire was out
before backup help arrived.

Dietrich says it appeared to have been an electrical fire, but
an investigation continues.
