www. LovellCh ronicle.com June 3, 2010 I The Lovell Chronicle I 9 BY BRAD DEVEREAUX Homeowners located above or below the Globe Canal hill stretching from Hwy. 32 on the west end of town to Hwy. 310 on the east, are encouraged to at- tend a Firewise meeting tonight at the Lovell Fire Hall at 6:30 p.m. "This meeting is for their protection," said fire captain Bob Mangus. "The hill is a huge problem. With a big wind storm in August with all that dry stuff, it would be one heck of a fire. "We don't have access to the hill. We would have to bring hoses through peo- ples' yards. It could be a real problem." Mangus said the fire department would be spread thin while trying to battle a blaze on the hill, with firefighters on top and below the hill trying to pro- tect structures from being damaged. The dead trees and other dried fuels on the hillside create a recipe for fast-spreading flames. "We would have a good chance of losing some homes," Mangus said about the current condition of the hillside and if it were to catch fire.
