Two Local Fire Departments Busy on Wednesday Morning

  Two Local Fire Departments Busy on Wednesday Morning


  Two local fire departments were kept busy Wednesday morning, January 18th.

  The Stetsonville Fire Department was paged out Wednesday morning around 4:00 to the report of a milk truck in the ditch near Gad on Lekie Drive off Highway C.  No injuries were reported, eight Stetsonville firemen were on the scene and returned to the Stetsonville Fire Hall by 4:30 Wednesday morning.

  A house fire on Medford's south side Wednesday morning closed Highway 13 to traffic for a brief time.

  The Taylor County Sheriff's Department received a 911 call reporting a house fire at 901 South 8th Street in Medford.  Reports indicate that the Medford Area Fire Department was called out at 9:30 Wednesday morning to a rental house on Highway 13 South.  

  When firemen entered the home they saw a small fire near the washer and dryer.  They were able to quickly extinguish the fire.  It was determined to be a lint fire which started in a clothes dryer and when the flex pipe burned through, some clothes outside the dryer began to burn.

  Preliminary damage estimates to the home are placed at $10,000.00.  Medford firemen were on the scene until 11:00 Wednesday morning.


Forget "Da Turdy Pointer"...Here's a Real Wall Hanger


  GALLATIN, Tenn. — A deer taken down by a Sumner County hunter in November will likely be declared a world record in 2019.

  The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said after letting the antlers from the deer Stephen Tucker killed in November dry out for 60 days, it has been measured and it is a 47-point buck.

  “When I turned around and see him, I was coaching myself because I got upset the first two times I seen him and I can’t let it get me this time,” Tucker said in November after shooting the deer. “Who would have thought anything like that would have come out of Sumner County, Tennessee.”

  Before it will be declared a world record there is a two-year wait.

  The Boone and Crockett Club has to officially measure it before it can be declared a world record. The club only measures every two years, so it won’t be official until 2019.
