A Life Flight chopper lands nearby and the victim is loaded aboard.

Moments later, Life Flight is off to Reno with their injured patient aboard.

Explosion rocks NE CC neighborhood – no injuries but at least four cars were destroyed

Fire and explosion outside apartment building on No. Edmonds near Brown St.

 

Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies along with the Carson City Fire Department were called out in the wee hours of the morning Wednesday on a report of a very loud explosion outside an apartment complex at 178 Brown St, facing North Edmonds.

At least four vehicles were set ablaze at around 4am. So far, no one in custody.

Authorities pulled up to see tall flames rising from the burning vehicles that were later reported to be deliberately set on fire.  Thus far, no suspect(s) are in custody.

The CCSO is asking help from local citizens to help them track down who pulled off a very dangerous explosion and fire.  If you know anything about this incident, or know who may have been behind it, call the Carson City Sheriff’s Office at 775-887-2677.  Or, Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.

Dumpster blaze threatened power lines and nearby cars

Big dumpster flames up against the fence at apartment complex on Woodside.

Carson City Firefighters were called to the scene of a large trash dumpster fire late Sunday afternoon.  A woman called the fire department and said that flames were rising very high, endangering a phone and powerline pole with hot flames and thick smoke.

Firefighters pulled up and immediately began fighting the blaze that was perilously close to parked cars and just a fence away from Fairview Drive.

Firefighters were able to knock the fire down in less than 15 minutes.  But then came the task of dragging out still burning and smoking trash from inside the dumpster.  Firefighters soaked it down.

As for a cause investigators say the fire burned so hot in a confined space that the precise spot where the fire erupted may be hard to determine. But suffice it to say the fire did erupt – one neighbor telling The Carson City Journal that even someone flinging a lit cigarette into the overflow pile of trash, pushed by a stiff afternoon breeze, might have been the cause.

Soaking down vehicles to prevent fire damage.

Fortunately no one was injured.  Firefighters say that flicking or flinging lit or glowing materials into a dumpster is always dangerous.  In this case there was a phone and power pole very close to the dumpster which could have damaged the power pole, electrical, cable TV and other systems that use power poles.

Woman screaming that her apartment is on fire at 1600 Airport Road

Carson City Firefighters were dispatched Sunday evening to a report of an apartment fire at 1600 Airport Road with a woman possibly trapped inside screaming.  She told 9-1-1 that the fire was big and that she had just gotten out of the building.

While firefighters were enroute, speedy Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies pulled up and began looking for the fire.  One of the deputies radioed 9-1-1 dispatch that there appeared to be no fire and that they had spotted what looked like the woman who had been screaming “fire!.”  Deputies approached the woman and began talking to her about her situation.  Firefighters turned around and headed back to their stations.

All Clear at Seal Rock State Park/Beach

Seal Rock State Beach
It’s safe to go in to the water again….

 

Health advisory for water contact at Agate Beach, Seal Rock State Park Beach and Harris Beach lifted July 1

Testing shows fecal bacteria levels have subsided

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) today lifted a public health advisory for contact with marine water at Agate Beach and Seal Rock State Park Beach, both in Lincoln County, and Harris Beach, in Curry County. The health authority issued the advisories June 26 and 27 after water samples showed higher-than-normal levels of fecal bacteria in ocean waters.

Results from later samples taken by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) showed lower bacteria levels. Contact with the water no longer poses a higher-than-normal risk. However, officials recommend staying out of large pools on the beach that are frequented by birds, and runoff from those pools, because the water may contain increased bacteria from fecal matter.

State officials continue to encourage other recreational activities at all Oregon beaches, suggesting only that water contact be avoided when advisories are in effect.

Since 2003, state officials have used a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grant to monitor popular Oregon beaches and make timely reports to the public about elevated levels of fecal bacteria. Oregon state agencies participating in this program are OHA, DEQ and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

For more information, visit the Oregon Beach Monitoring Program website at www.healthoregon.org/beach or call 971-673-0440, or call the OHA toll-free information line at 877-290-6767.
