****************************************************

House Fire: A two-story home at 2519 Webster Street in Liberty was destroyed by fire Saturday around 1:30 a.m. One vehicle was also destroyed and another sustained some heat damage. Liberty Fire Chief Fred Collins said that blaze appears to be accidental - the result of a burning candle, but his investigation continues. No one was injured in the fire.

Accidental Shooting: Dayton police are investigating what appears to be an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot that sent a resident of that city to an area hospital. Dayton Police Sgt Doug O’Quinn said it occurred around 6 a.m. Saturday at a home on Linney Street near S.H. 321. Sgt O’Quinn said, based on their preliminary investigation, it appears the man accidentally discharged a 9mm pistol and the bullet struck his leg. The Dayton resident was transported by Liberty County EMS ground ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he was treated and released. Dayton police are not releasing the man’s name until they have a chance to interview him about Saturday’s shooting. Police expect that interview to take place today.

****************************************************

Prostate Screening: The Liberty-Dayton Regional Medical Center and KSHN Radio are once again planning a free prostate screening clinic this coming Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at the hospital. It includes both recommended tests – the PSA and DRE. Most experts say all men above 50 years olds should get prostate screenings each year. However, that age is lowered to 45 for men with a close blood relative who has had prostate cancer. Experts also recommend African American men begin getting screenings at the age of 45 because of a high incidence of prostate cancer for them. Saturday’s free screenings will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

****************************************************

DFVD Officers: Dayton Volunteer Fire Department elected officers at its annual meeting last Thursday. The department also named Chad Glatfelter as Firefighter of the Year. He will be among the community members honored at the upcoming Dayton Chamber Banquet on January 25. Turning to officer elections, Terry Boyett will continue as chief of Liberty County’s largest volunteer department. Assistant chief is once again Murphy Green. Brent Harrison was elected secretary, and Adam Piserelle is treasurer.
