Just before 9 :30 pm tonight several fire departments were responding to a structure fire near Rockton.

MABAS box 12 to the 2nd alarm.

Reports of a structure fire near 12158 Old River rd near Rockton.

Several fire departments are en route to assist.

Cristi Meyers-Arnold It’s fully engulfed. We think it’s a barn. This is from my home about 0.5 mile away. There are multiple fire trucks there- blocking Old River Rd. May want to avoid the area and find an alternative way to get home. They aren’t leaving any time soon.

UPDATE: Great news, the person with the dash camera footage has sent us the video to pass along to Brisa.   The person wanted to remain anonymous.

 


RS fan was involved in an accident today and needs your help.

“Hi, my name is Brisa Gonzalez and I could you use this pages’ help…I was involved in a car accident today 2/9/19 around 2pm in the intersection of E. Jefferson and N.6th st..

I was going west on Jefferson and and my light was green and the other car was going south on 6th st and he ran the red light causing the accident…the guy who caused the accident admitted fault to me and my passenger but when the cops arrived he changed his story.

There was a witness involved who captured everything on his dashcam on his truck but he left before the cops arrived and since I was inside the ambulance I unfortunately did not get his information.

So I’m asking for your help to share this and see if there were any witnesses around when the accident happened to come forward.
I would appreciate it so much and thank you in advance
-Brisa G”
