• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Barn fire - union county

Not open for further replies.
Feb 24, 2001
Location: Fish Rd between Delaware County Line, and Hinton Mill.
Time: 02:21 Tuesday, 15 June
Channel/Talkgroup: All units responded on UNI OPS-2

A barn was reported on fire. While units responded, they were advised of Aceteline and oxygen (welding materials), as well as gasoline and diesel were stored in 150 gallon containers nearby. There was also livestock in the barn.

Some of those flammable materials actually exploded, and was actually visible from 8 miles away.

Firefighters from Delaware, and Union counties knocked down the flames in approx. 1hr 10mins. Still smoldering though.

No word as to what caused it, (there was severe thunderstorms earlier, so it's possible that it was lightening)
