Crosby VFD’s swiftness saves buildings, lives

Crosby Volunteer Fire Dept.’s Chief Alan Kulak was on his way to church on Feb. 9 when he saw flames shooting from the roof of Apaseo Restaurant on FM 2100 at Kernohan. Apparently a ballast from neon trim lights caught fire to roof parts. Kulak and a quickly mounted crew battled the blaze with help from Highlands VFD to save the restaurant, which opened the next day. Kulak attributed the save to the efforts of the fire crews from Highlands and Crosby.

Also, as seen in this second picture, Crosby VFD & ESD#5 cooperate to rescue a driver from a two car accident on FM 2100 at Hare Rd. on Monday, Feb. 14. Fortunately, the swift actions of both rescue crews extracted the previous occupant of the red car to safety and on to the hospital with only minor injuries.
