A winter weather advisory isn’t enough to keep the fire department away from a burning house. But they do take a few common sense precautions. “Our drivers are pretty sharp; I’ve told them, in weather like this, slow down and make sure you get there,” said Ottumwa Fire Department Chief Tony Miller. “If you wreck a truck, that takes it out of service; that’s no good. They know — but we remind them once in a while anyway.” Just before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, a call came in: A resident suspects there’s fire in the walls of their home. Just after 1:30 p.m. the fire department pulled up, and called in a report of smoke. Moments later they confirmed they were at a “working” house fire. Even before they began spraying water, the 1100 block of Lillian Street was slick.
