Fire Facts   –  More now on a story we shared first yesterday morning.  There was an alarm at about 1am Thursday at the CANPACK building for a small interior fire.  We were told it was a short lived incident, with no major damage and at least one was treated for smoke inhalation.  People on Facebook made assertions that were not accurate – one stating there are no fire hydrants.  There ARE, hydrants owned by CANPACK were not operational since they are not completed with their construction.  There are hydrants along Fuson Road owned by American Water Company that are working.  The initial responding department was a volunteer unit of the Salem Township as it’s their jurisdiction – the property is outside Muncie city limits and Center Township.
