On April 9, firefighters were dispatched to Westview Drive for a report of a water or steam leak. Firefighters arrived on scene at 1:03 AM and cleared the scene at 1:25 AM. Firefighters investigated the leak and shut down the system.

On April 6, just before 2 p.m., firefighters responded to a grass fire at 210th Street and Coates Boulevard. We previously reported on this incident on KDWA. Firefighters arrived at 2:05 p.m. and controlled the blaze at 2:30, clearing the scene at 2:44. One total acre was burned in the fire.

Less than 45 minutes later, firefighters were called to another grass fire in Vermillion Township, this one on Donnelly Avenue. Firefighters were dispatched at 3:15 p.m. and arrived at 3:30, controlling the blaze at 3:50 and clearing at 4:17. 15 firefighters responded to control this fire and additional personnel were used to cover a fire alarm in the city at the same time, making for a very busy Saturday afternoon.
