On Wednesday, December 5, at 22:00 hours, Company 8 units were dispatched for a structure fire at 207 E. Main Street in Berryville.

Following evacuation, crews were split to provide protection on the Delta exposure. ALS 8’s vehicle was used as the initial command center. Attempts to fight the fire were complicated by a rupture in the gas main feeding the structure. Chief 1 (Sours) had command.
