The Boca Grande Fire Department responded to numerous calls this week, including multiple alarm calls and ambulance calls. The highlights, though, are as follows:
On Friday, Dec. 31 the fire department responded to a call of a kayak flipped over with two adults and two children in the water. While they were all wearing life jackets, they were unable to right the kayak and get back in. A second kayak had already floated away. They eventually washed to shore on their own.
On Monday, Jan. 3 the fire department received a call of an overturned dump truck on Lee Avenue. Apparently the ground was unstable and that was the cause of the incident.
On Wednesday, Jan. 5 the fire department responded to a call of a “structure fire” on Banyan Street that turned out to be a towel on fire. It had already been extinguished by the time firefighters arrived.
