Training Going On “VIDEO”

Training 3Neighbors wondered what was going on.

The El Dorado Fire Department just recently finished a new training tower, but there’s nothing like the real thing.  That real thing was a house that is slated for demolition soon.

This morning the firefighters practiced rooftop evolutions.  Two new Butler Community College students got in on the training.

The evolution also gave firefighters the opportunity to work with their new aerial ladder tower.

Great job El Dorado Firefighters!

K196 Motor Home Fire “VIDEO”

Camper FireThe El Dorado and Towanda Fire Departments assisted the Potwin Fire Department with what was dispatched as a vehicle fire at NW 50th and Highway 196.

Upon arrival crews found a motor home  fully engulfed with fire.  The gasoline and the propane tank involvement hampered the fire fight.  The roadway was closed down for approximately 45 minutes.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire, but the motor home was a total loss.  No injuries were sustained.

The cause of the fire was undetermined.
