L Carroll Chamber of Commerce Grass Fires Keep City's Firemen Busy By Don Davis Carroll firemen are keeping busy this summer fighting grass fires. The dry weather of late June and early July made conditions right for grass fires, but Fire Chief Robert Wieland said the worst may be yet to come. Wieland said the top grass fire season is fall. So far this summer, the Carroll department has been called to four fires near railroad tracks and three other grass or brush fires. In 1973 the department was called to just five grass fires all year. The figure was 15 in 1972. Three of this year's fires were near the same spot on the Chicago and North Western Railway tracks on Carroll's eastern edge. Track fires are tough problems, Wieland said. The railroads spray the area around the tracks to kill grass and weeds, making the trackbed one long strip of dead, dry vegetation. Trains traveling the tracks often create sparks, which ignite the dead grass. A problem making these fires even harder to fight, Wieland said, is wooden ties left near the tracks. The chief said the railroads leave ties "all over" and when the grass burns, so do the ties. Wieland said the ties are "almost impossible to put out." Often the firemen must leave them smoldering near the tracks. Other types of grass and brush fires can be prevented by "common sense," Wieland said. Most non-railway grass fires begin when somebody is burning rubbish and the fire gets out of their control. Wieland had a couple of suggestions to help prevent the fires. One is to not burn rubbish when there is a wind that might whip the flames out of control. The other is to keep a garden hose close by to keep the flames where they will do no harm. One complaint Wieland has about small grass fires is the cost to fight them. A survey by Iowa State University showed it cost the city $250 just to respond to an alarm. The figure included insurance, depreciation, firemen's pay, and other expenses. The chief said the cost has most likely gone up since the survey was conducted. The city has three pumpers that carry water, two with 750-gallon capacity and one with a 600-gallon tank. The department also has a large pumper with no water storage capacity for use downtown and for larger fires. The city's 1500 gallon water tanker is also available. In 1973 the department responded to 66 calls, 13 of which were out of the city. In 1972 there were 72 alarms, 27 out of town.
