Northwood Officials Applaud Evacuation Volunteers

   Officials have applauded the work of volunteers who helped with the evacuation of a small northern Iowa city following a chemical fire.
   Authorities in Northwood used buses Thursday morning to transport residents to a community center in nearby Kensett. The buses were later used to bring residents back when the evacuation was called off in the afternoon.
   Amber Julseth, the city clerk of Northwood, said about 250 people showed up at the center. Several emergency response teams assisted city officials.
   Julseth said everyone at the center was well during their time there, and she called the volunteers "exceptional."
   The fire began Thursday morning in a building at the local airport. The cause of the fire, which was later contained, remains under investigation.
