On Saturday morning, December 16th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for an alarm sounding incident on West Kathryn Court in the Baylis Estates development.  It was reported to be a residential structure with a second story smoke detectors sounding.

Emergency response units from Indian River included Tanker 80 from the Oak Orchard facility and Engine #80-3 form the Long Neck facility.
