Measure once, cut a bunch

Leetonia firefighters were dispatched to three spots – Cherry Fork Road, state Route 558 and state Route 14 – in a one-hour time period Wednesday to remove trees downed in the windy conditions. Here, Dan Joy grabs the next section of tree trunk as firefighter Bill Garlough cuts away at reachable branches of a felled large black walnut tree blocking both sides of state Route 558. Also helping with the removal were firefighters Johnny Rohrer, Greg Hephner, Randy Hall and Ron Hall, Sr. An ODOT plow truck was also standing by.
