"They did an outstanding job of protecting the two occupied buildings that were exposed."Several families in the two adjacent buildings were evacuated as a precaution. There were no reports of injuries.The volunteer auxiliary force of 12 blocked off all intersections from Parker to South Union Street and from Salem to Market to provide access for fire trucks.
