Flames burns down after 40 years of firefighting
In the years around 1972, a short siren blast would summon the on-call firefighters to a fire out of town, and a long blast would mean there was a fire in town.
"If the wind was blowing in the wrong direction," said Paul "Pauly" Whiteside, "some of the time you couldn't hear the whistle."
The firefighters would quickly hurry to the fire station where they were dispatched by the power plant. From there they arrived to put on the blaze as fast as they could.
