UP: To the support among area fire departments during emergencies. This cooperation was on display Tuesday when lightning started a fire at a home on Wyndemere Drive. Vienna and Williamstown volunteer firefighters responded to the scene to assist Parkersburg firefighters on the scene. Meanwhile, volunteer firefighters from the Waverly and Lubeck fire departments provided coverage in case an emergency happened in Vienna, while members of the Belpre and Reno volunteer fire departments crossed the Ohio River to safeguard Williamstown and Parkersburg. During this time Belpre firefighters responded to a report of smoke at R&J Recycling on Garfield Avenue. While it was not a fire, the cooperation among departments that reaches beyond state lines shows the dedication these people have to their responsibilities.
