Great Bend Fire/EMS
Firefighters made five ambulance run Thursday.
At 8:10 p.m., they responded to a possible vehicle fire at 24th and Washington. According to Chief Mike Napolitano, they could not locate the vehicle, but a bystander said he had seen the fire in the back of a white pickup, and stopped to help put out the fire; then the pickup took off. The pickup was located and the driver said someone may have thrown a cigarette out of a vehicle into the cardboard box in the back of the pickup, starting the fire. The box was burned on two sides, but the fire was out and no one was injured.
