Talladega Fire Department weekly report
by Chris Norwood
It was a relatively slow week for the Talladega Fire Department.

According to Captain Ron Goodenough, between July 11 and July 18, the department responded to two structure fires, a car fire, one motor vehicle accident, an alarm call and a miscellaneous call regarding a tree on a power line.

The motor vehicle accident took place Wednesday morning on the 275 Bypass at Renfroe Road and sent the drivers of both vehicles involved to the hospital.

One of the structure fires was a stovetop fire on Renee Drive. The other involved a small fire on a wooden back porch on Jemison Street, which the resident was able to extinguish with a garden hose.
