No injuries in fire

LAKE OZARK – After an investigation by the Missouri Fire Marshall’s Office, the cause of a structure fire last week is undetermined.

At 7:44 a.m. on Tuesday March 14, the Lake Ozark Fire Protection District (LOFPD) was dispatched to the area of Highway V in Miller County for a reported commercial structure fire.

Firefighters were on scene nine minutes later and found a 20 by 40 metal building burning with significant fire and smoke showing.

Crews made a large volume attack with the deck gun and a 2.5 inch attack line and were able to bring the fire under control within thirty minutes.

There was one patient at the scene that was treated and refused further care.

There were no injuries to any firefighters or additional civilians.

The LOFPD was assisted by the Osage Beach Fire Protection District, the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District, The Rocky Mount Fire Protection District, the Mid-County Fire Protection District and the City of Eldon Fire Department.

The cause of the fire was undetermined after an investigation by the State of Missouri Fire Marshal’s Office.

Ambulance district discusses Montreal station

CAMDEN COUNTY – A discussion was held last week at the Camden County Ambulance District (CCAD) monthly meeting on what to do with the Montreal station.

Currently that station is manned only part-time and what to do about it was addressed by the ambulance board.

There are two problems with keeping the station open all the time and they are financial and personnel.

The district owns all the stations and the ambulances but contracts out to Mercy for personnel and dispatching.

A representative from Mercy explained that even though they are a large organization, they are having problem finding personnel.

Even though they can offer decent pay and maybe even a sign-on bonus, people just don’t want to do the job anymore.

Doctors and nurses that work in hospitals deal with trauma on a regular basis but it’s different than what the ambulance personnel see.
