Well, there is a little correcting that I must do on this article.
First, there as a call in Geneva County at 7:14 PM dispatched by Geneva County 911 at 610 Collins Road in Malvern. The call was 6.5 acres on fire and a mobile home in danger. Malvern Volunteer Fire responded and called for assistance of Slocomb Volunteer Fire.
While a Slocomb Volunteer Fireman was responding to the fire in Malvern from 84 West, that Volunteer came on a outdoor fire, on both sides of the road om South Bay Springs Road and Marshall Road. The Slocomb Volunteer Fireman called the fire in to the Houston County Sheriff Department to send Bay Springs Volunteer Fire and Wicksburg Volunteer Fire to South Bay Springs Road and Marshall Road, while the Slocomb Fireman was rolling to the Malvern Fire.
Malvern Volunteer Fire Department and Slocomb Volunteer Fire Department handled the fires in Geneva County where a mobile home was in danger.
Bay Springs Volunteer Fire Department and Wicksburg Volunteer Fire Department handled the Houston County Fire.
Hopefully I have explained it where it can be understood. But two different fires, all handled by people who do not get paid, who do not get a retirement, do not get health insurance, but are people who care for their community.
Sorry if there was confusion. But I was listening on the radio and did not respond to the scene.
