Volunteer Firemen Answer Three Calls
Kuna Volunteer Firemen were fighting two fires simultaneously Monday afternoon. The firemen had just taken the rural truck and tanker to the Albert Forrey farm to put out a haystack fire when a call came in from the Nicholson sheep ranch east of town. The rural truck was backtracked to fight that blaze. Both fires are reported to have started from weed fires. Thursday afternoon a call was answered at the Eshelman farm 2 miles east and one mile north of Kuna, where food left in the oven of the range caught fire. Damage was confined to the range.
