Burst water pipe extinguishes blaze
Township building damaged in fire
DIXON – The Palmyra Township building had no sprinkler system until a fire essentially created one recently.
Late Feb. 3 or early Feb. 4, a fire started in a dump truck in the township garage, said Vern Gottel, the township’s supervisor. Apparently, flames shot right up, causing an overhead water line to burst, he said. The spray of the water is believed to have put out the blaze.
When Gottel showed up the morning of Feb. 4, he heard water running. He went from the office side of the building to the garage, where he saw soot all over and water spraying out of the burst pipe. The fire was out.
