this article shows how other fire departments come to help the ones in need. As a firefighter that has been at the Andersons for many hours I would also like to add a thanks to The Andersons, other businesses near by, and the Delphi fire dept Womens Aux. for providing us with food, drinks, and sometimes just a brief break. Thank You.

My question is , if the corn cobs were worth $1,000,000 , why hadn't they been sold before now ?

WHen you drive by the pile it looks like a volcano with lava running down it, my question is, when the andersons here in logansport caught fire they had semi tanker trucks full of water on scene pumping into a pool as opposed to running somewhere else to get the water, why hasn't that procedure been implemented?

I have been at the stone quarry loading these trucks. We had 5 semi trucks (approx 10,000 gal.) and 12 fire dept tank trucks (2,300 gal) running at last count. With over a hundred volunteers putting time in over a holiday week pulling 14-16 hour shifts there aren't many options that haven't been thought of, including calling in the national guard, allocating mobile pumps rather than overworking fire trucks, using airport crash trucks and foam or using helicopters.

The unseen danger here is, so much equipment has been pushed to it's limit, manpower is exhausted. If there were to be another fire in the county, it will be a challenge to provide the level of service our citizens deserve.
