Highland Park’s 60th calls for 911 response


On Sunday, Highland Park Baptist Church celebrated its 60th anniversary and extinguished a fire.
Duncan firefighters responded to a fire call around 8:50 a.m. Sunday. Deputy Fire Chief Dayton Burnside said the fire was contained to a small closet holding a water heater and a broom.
“A broom stuck in the hot water closet caught fire,” Burnside said. “They extinguished it.”
The firefighters arrived on the scene to ensure the fire was fully extinguished, he said. Burnside said people should be cautious when storing items near water heaters.
“That’s why we go around and check to make sure people don’t have combustible items by hot water tanks,” Burnside said.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
