Richard Linenberg and Kurt Prise know all about adrenaline rush. It’s what sustained them when they suddenly got out of bed in the middle of the night to fight fires. The two long-time Oakdale Area Fire Department firefighters are ready to leave the adrenaline rush to the next generation. After a combined 64 years of service, they officially retired Tuesday and were honored by their fellow firefighters with a plaque and pizza party. Fires can occur at any time, and Prise said he never had a problem clearing the cobwebs when the alarm sounded overnight.
