THEIR ‘DAY OFF’—
When you’re a volunteer firefighter there’s really no such thing. The Rockdale VFD answered three fire calls on Sunday. This is how it started. At 8:02 a.m. volunteers were called to 715 North FM 908 and extinguished a burning deck. At 12:39 p.m. the RVFD was summoned to a wooded area at the end of Brazos Street for an out-of-control burn. Volunteers wrapped up the day with a 9:07 p.m. call to a grass fire off Alford Street. Volunteers also responded to a report of a fire in an oven at 519 Murray at 4:54 p.m. Thursday.
