Stone House - yet again
Sat. Sep 18th 2010

514 Main Street North is a very unique building that gets a lot of attention from motorists, the newspaper and lately the WVFD.

"Cadillac Joe's" as the locals refer to the place, is a unoccupied stone house that the owner has been building for over 25 years.  The structure is big, the lawn is dotted with piles of materials that Joe uses to work on the home from time to time but it is very apparent that the structure is unoccupied.

The only heat source in the building is a big old stone fireplace in the center of the building.  Joe stokes it up when he is there and when he leaves it is sometimes still going and smoke can be seen billowing out the chimney.  Passing motorists think the home is on fire and they call it into dispatch.

The WVFD responds to the home as a non-emergency call, no lights or sirens, and investigates the smoke from the chimney and normally finds that Joe has been and gone, but left the fireplace to burn out on its own.  He places big thick metal shields in front so the burning materials don't fallout of the fire box.  Today's call was just that - a smoldering fire in the fire place.  All units were returned and no action was taken.
