Quiet night for Kentville Police

Kings County News

A couple of local fire departments responded to minor emergencies on Tuesday, Dec. 31.

At approximately 9:30 a.m., Greenwich firefighters responded to a chimney fire at a residence on Forsythe Road South in White Rock. The fire was extinguished fairly quickly, and without major incident.

Asked if fighting fires outside was any more difficult at temperatures 10 degrees or more below zero Celsius, fire Chief Dave Miller replied, "the stuff we wear, you stay pretty warm in it, and there was no wind, so we were okay."

Later, at around 4 p.m., Kentville firefighters responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Church Street and Middle Dyke Road at Chipman Corner. On arrival, they found a car and a transport truck had collided. 

According to fire Chief Ryan MacEachern, the car was "demolished" as a result. There were no injuries, though MacEachern said the older lady driving the car was "very lucky" she wasn't more seriously hurt, given the damage to her vehicle.

When contacted  Jan. 1, Kentville Police reported no serious incidents overnight and over the holidays. "For the most part, everybody was pretty well behaved."
