FIRE DAMAGES JOSEPH MOBILE HOME; TWO FIREFIGHTERS RESPOND FROM WALLOWA LAKE
Joseph Assistant Fire Chief Matt Walker and Volunteer Firefighter Dirk Wiggins responded from Wallowa Lake Tuesday night, May 15, to a mobile home fire in Joseph. They joined Joseph and Enterprise volunteers who doused the blaze quickly, keeping it from spreading to nearby houses.
The fire was just a few yards from Our Little Store, where a May 2 fire did major damage. The cause of that fire remains undetermined and the business is rebuilding.
Fire Chief Tom Clevenger, a deputy Oregon fire marshal and an Oregon State Police arson investigator were on the scene Wednesday. The same team investigated the store fire as well.
