    One injury accident east of Scottsburg and several fires around the city gave the Scottsburg Volunteer Fire Department a stretch of activity at the end of 2009.
    Chief James Richey said rescuers used the Jaws of Life on a vehicle on December 28 that had been struck from behind by a large grain hauler at the intersection of State Roads 56 and 203.
    The Scottsburg department was assisting Lexington Volunteer Fire Department on that accident. The driver of the pickup truck that was hit, Harold Bowen, was freed from the wreckage in about ten minutes. Bowen was later found to have suffered no broken bones. His late model pickup was a total loss.
    On Tuesday, December 29, an early morning structure fire occurred at 2 a.m. on Lynhurst Street in Scottsburg.
    Chief Richey said tenants of the house owned by Tim Hutchinson lost electrical power around midnight. “The husband and wife decided she would take their child and go and stay with relatives and the husband would stay there. He told me he woke up around 2 a.m. because he just felt something wasn't right. He touched an upstairs wall and felt heat. That's when he called the fire department,” related the fire chief.
