South Sumter Fire Department answered numerous calls for service this past weekend.  Beginning on Saturday night the Cuba Fire Department received a report of a grass and woods fire on County Road 27 at Drummond Drive.  Arriving units found a powerline down in the woods and APCO was notified of the emergency.  Cuba was assisted by units from Kinterbish, Siloam, and Morning Star Fire Departments.  On Sunday, Cuba was dispatched to a grass fire on I 20-59 near the 5 mile marker.  Units from York Police and Fire were also dispatched to the scene.  Cuba Engine 2 arrived on scene to find a very small fire along the northbound side of the interstate.  Through conversations with the dispatcher it was discovered that there were more than five fires set along the interstate.  This is common in the warmed months when tires on transport vehicles fail. 

Sunday Evening the Cuba, Siloam and Kinterbish Fire Departments were dispatched to a structure fire in the Cuba area.  Arriving units found like smoke conditions and confirmed that the power was off to the structure.  Engine 2 arrived and its fan and foam can were used to minimize the damage to the structure.  The family was assisted by the American Red Cross and all units went home for some much deserved rest. 

Maybe this week will be quiet…
