Crews Called to Highway #32 Ditch Fire Monday

0

A Red Flag Warning for much of the listening area yesterday, issued by the National Weather Service due to low humiliates, warm temperatures and high winds that signal a higher risk of Fire Danger.

In fact, wildfire risk is expected to be especially high for the next ten days with notice from the local Forestry Office in Warroad.

Area Forester Adam Munstenteiger says conditions are right for fire to grow at a rapid rate, advising listeners to call 911 to report a wildfire.

A burning ban remains in effect for much of the listening area with no permits being issued until conditions improve.

It has already been a busy week for fire departments across the area, including fire crews in Thief River Falls, called to a ditch fire Monday on Highway #32 North.

Fire fighters quickly had the situation under control with only a half-acre consumed; no damage or injuries reported, but the cause of the fire points out how dry conditions are; started by sparks thrown from a hot wheel bearing on a trailer.

In Memory of Orville Ellingson

0

There was a time when his was the name behind everything friendly in Thief River Falls

Life-long Resident, Orville Ellington, died late last week at Sanford Hospital in Fargo.

Orville was a 1945 Graduate of Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls going on to serve a single year in the armed forces, a choice that changed the course of his life becoming fully dedicated to veterans and local veteran affairs.

He will be remembered for his American Legion Service, and for his dedication to all things Thief River Falls, including his persistence in changing attitudes regarding the city’s American Indian Heritage, encouraging revision of the tribute at Chief Red Robe Park.

Friendship was important to Orville. He was a quiet, creative and determined man, constantly showing appreciation and looking for ways to make things better. A generous soul, who shared his many interests, his spirit lives on in a collection of mosquito houses, clocks, country churches and photography cherished by like-minded friends all across the Nation and in Canada.

Funeral Services are planned Thursday at the Evangelical Free church in Thief River Falls.

Orville Ellingson was 88.
