The Eagle Bend Volunteer Fire Department, with two calls last week, completed the busiest month of January on record with a total of five calls during the one month period. The two most recent calls were to the George Behrmann farm home west of the village on Thursday where a chimney fire prompted the family to call the department as a precautionary measure. And to the Emil Reierson farm home east of the village the following day where a pump house was destroyed by an early morning blaze.
