Washington County Dispatcher Takes Call Reporting Fire at His Home

By Paul Sylvain

The last thing long-time Washington County emergency dispatcher Phil Roberts ever expected was to take a call reporting his Marshfield home on fire, but that’s exactly what happened around 5:30 p.m. on July 20.

“I took the call,” Roberts said, when asked if he was on duty at the time.

The cause of the fire at Roberts’ Marshfield residence “technically remains under investigation,” said Roberts, during a phone interview July 21.
