The Albertville Fire Department will soon be accepting applications for volunteer reserve fire fighters.
The Albertville Fire Department asked the council to approve the addition of three reserve fire fighters at Wednesday night's council meeting. "The last several years we've been losing on average two fire fighters a year due to job changes or moving," Albertville Fire Chief Tate Mills told the council Wednesday night. Adding three reserve fire fighters would help the department because as paid on call fire fighters leave, Mills would have new fire fighters already trained to replace them. Reserve fire fighters would not be paid though they would be covered under the fire departments' insurance policy. However once someone is a reserve fire fighter they would be ready for a paid on call spot once one opened up. "It wouldn't be based on …

Memories of the Dahlheimer farm stayed alive as the house on the farm burned to the ground as planned Saturday.

Owners of the farm, Merle and Laverne Dahlheimer, decided it was time to burn the abandoned house, barn and sheds on the property. Merle was raised on the farm since he was an infant in 1926, and he and his wife raised eight children there, who in turn raised their own children on the farm. Carol Eicher, Merle and Laverne's daughter, sat with her relatives to watch the burn. As she watched the drills of the …

The St. Michael, Albertville and Monticello fire departments conducted firefighter training at their planned burn of the house on the Dahlheimer Farm.
Local fire departments took advantage of a rare opportunity to conduct firefighter training at a burn of a house Saturday on the Dahlheimer Farm, located between Albertville and Monticello. Owners of the farm, Merle and Laverne Dahlheimer of Monticello, asked the fire departments to burn the house, barn and sheds on the property — they haven't been used for years.

After the practice, they let the house burn to the ground. The house was used as a starter home for several of the Dahlheimers throughout the years, but the family decided it was time to clean up the now-abandoned buildings. Check back for …
