Tuesday, 11 September 2012 11:22
According to City Manager Shane Siewart, the City of Valentine will be installing and testing a new hazard alarm over the next few days. Several short "growl"
tests will probably be heard over the next several days, with possibly some longer full alarm tests just prior to the new alarm being placed into service. For more
information contact the city office at 402-376-2323.
Local Business Fire

Local emergency response units were called out about 7:35 Tuesday morning to a report of smoke coming from the McDonald's restaurant on South Main Street in Valentine. A fire apparently started in the exhaust fan system and filled the building with smoke. Fire crews and ambulance personnel responded and people evacuated the building. There was smoke and water damage when the sprinkler system went off. Fire crews were sent back to the barn by about 8:30. The Shell Travel Plaza remains open today but McDonald's will be closed.
