Don’t tell the Mt. Vernon Fire Department nothing ever happens in small towns. In its case, when it rains, it pours. Starting Memorial Day afternoon, through early Tuesday night, firefighters in the town of 2,500 in Rockcastle County had plenty to say grace over. Around 9 Tuesday night, MVFD crews were dispatched to Lake Linville to help five people who were on a pontoon boat that had broken down, the department said on its Facebook page. Fire personnel were able to meet at the dock and send two separate pontoons to the stranded boaters. One pontoon transported the boaters back while the other towed the broken down boat. At about 5 a.m. Tuesday, crews were dispatched to a reported brush fire on Hysinger Hollow Road in Mount Vernon.
