Fire/Rescue Calls 

On 2017.04.09, 2017.04.16, 2017.04.17 and 2017.04.23 - Midway Volunteer Fire Company responded to four different Brush Fires. In all cases the fires were brought under control without major property damage. Additionally, all fires were the result of small “controlled burns” that became quickly unmanageable. We encourage proper fire attention and management at all times. Additionally, if wind or any unanticipated event causes the “controlled burn” to exceed your expectations CALL 911 immediately. Don’t think twice, if in doubt place the call.

2017.04.06 at 3:37 PM - Midway Volunteer Fire Department responded to a 911 call for smoke in a garage. It was determined that the smoke was from a dog fence control box that shorted following an electrical surge resulting from a lightning strike of the next door neighbor's tree. As you can see from the photo, the tree exploded and sent shards of wood out in a 100 foot radius. There were no reported injuries to first responders or home owners.
