Water Rescue: Liberty Fire Fighters were called out for a water rescue in the early morning hours of Wednesday. Assistant Fire Chief Bryan Hurst said the call was for three people stranded in a boat on the Trinity River. The fire department launched their own water craft and located the boat, dead in the water. The craft suffered engine problems. The three men, Robin Robinson, Jeff Robinson and Warren Fowell were unhurt. The boat was towed back to town. Assistant Chief Hurst said these types of rescues are rare. He said in his 10 years with the department, this is only the second such rescue for which the department has been called.

WFVD Woes: Westlake volunteer firefighters are once again responding to calls in the department's emergency vehicles. Fire Chief J.R. Ungles said because there is no contract in place between the two entities, WFVD and ESD #3, state law does not allow the ESD-paid insurance to cover the department's vehicles. Through their own fund-raising efforts, the Westlake Community Volunteer Fire Department has now paid for its own insurance. No word on when the two entities might meet and come to an agreement.
