The Talladega Fire Department responded to 11 calls during the week from July 17 to July 24.
The first of these was an alarm call at the old Crown Textiles Building, which is now owned by Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind. The call was unfounded.
Friday, the only emergency call involved a vehicle versus power pole accident on Ashland Highway. There was only one vehicle involved in the accident, and the driver was transported to the hospital for treatment of his injuries, according to Fire Capt. Ronny Davis.
The next call came in Saturday, another one-vehicle accident with one person transported. In this incident, a vehicle overturned on Stemley Bridge Road.
The week’s only structure fire was also on Saturday, at Sunrise Apartments on Broadway Avenue. Fire damaged three apartments, although no one was hurt. Firefighters came back later that day for a possible reignition, but it turned out to be smoke that had been trapped previously.
There were also two false alarm calls on Saturday, one on Court Street and one at Mountain View and Grogan Road. There was also a natural gas smell reported at Court Street and Gary Avenue.
There was another single vehicle accident, with one person transported, Monday on Alabama 21, as well as an alarm call on Homer Drive.
Davis said there was a two-vehicle accident on Renfroe Road near the 275 Bypass, although no one was injured. The following day, there was a two-vehicle accident at North Street and Johnson Avenue which resulted in one person being transferred.
