HFD responds to vehicle fire in driveway

Fire truck  HaysHays firefighters were called to the scene of a vehicle fire at 1712 Copper Creek Court Thursday evening at 5:51 p.m.

According to Fire Chief Gary Brown, police officers first on the scene reported the vehicle, sitting in the driveway, was “well-involved” in fire. As a precaution, off-duty firefighters and Ellis County EMS were called in case the fire spread to the house.

Firefighters were able to quickly get the vehicle fire under control.  It did not spread to the house.

Brown said the “quick-thinking residents discovered the car on fire in the attached garage and pushed it out into the driveway.”

The fire, most likely caused by an electrical short, caused heavy damage to the vehicle.

    I just videotaped a police unit, a ladder, an engine and the shift commander running ELS going west on 27th street.

  • west 27th

    No you mean a truck company and an engine Company. Not a ladder

  • @FF521

    Well yes and no, since HFD only staffs 7 personel per shift: airport ff, lieutenant, captain, and 4 firefighters at station 1, it’s not a full engine or ladder company, I.e 4 men per truck, 4 men per engine.

  • @FF521

    Quick question tho I’m not bashing you, are you a HFD firefighter? If so can you tell me why I can’t get the local police fire and EMS scanner anymore?

  • why

    They went digital

  • Hmmm….

    Why does on the side under “recent comments” it has shown people commented on this but I have never seen any comments??

    • no kidding

      Wondering the same thing. And they seem to ignore the question whenever asked about it

      • guest

        I sent them a screen shot of this both yesterday and today…..
        This happens about once or twice a week.

          Look at the story on Ellis Co Courthouse upgrade…
          “wannamove” makes a recent comment on right but there are no comments under the story?????

          • HaysPost43

            Zeus is correct. We have a “recent” module that needs upgraded. So it is showing comments that have been flagged by our filters. Most of those are attempting to eliminate profanity. Our programmers are working on the issue. Thanks!

    • Hey Zeus Hispanica

      I think it’s because moderators either delete the comment, or the website flags it for approval. That’s what happened on a website I used to have a long time ago.

  • Digital as in no radio? I’m so confused.

  • Ikr!

    I was researching and there is no way for us to get any scanner feed from a digital system, it sucks because it’s a valuable tool for a lot of people.

  • Buy One

    You can still listen if you go and buy a police scanner.. Just can’t listen via internet.

    On my phone it shows 15 comments for the story but only 5 are shown

  • Yea.

    Same here it’s really dumb.
