Fire marshal to probe camper blaze

NEW CASTLE — The state police fire marshal was called to investigate a blaze that destroyed a Bonanni Road camper.

Jeff Parish, chief of the Volant Volunteer Fire Department, said the 67-year-old resident of the 1989 Prairie Schooner camper trailer was not at home Tuesday when the blaze broke out.

Parish said the camper was parked in the backyard of a Plain Grove Township residence. He said firefighters received the call about 1 a.m. Tuesday and remained at the scene for about an hour.

Participating were 25 firefighters from volunteer departments in Volant, Scott and Springfield Township in Mercer County.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
