At 1:45 a.m. on June 6, 2018, a volunteer firefighter was at home when his pager went off to respond to a fire. Once on the scene, the firefighter began to feel ill and sat down. After sitting, the firefighter became incoherent and unconscious. He was placed in a police vehicle, given water, and then immediately began to feel better. After 11 additional firefighters became ill, it is believed that the cause was a bad potato salad that was brought to a monthly dinner at the firehouse three days prior.
