Marshall police and fire departments collaborated Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 26, to rescue 18 Butterfield Youth Service residents and two adults from a facility on Route WW near Marshall.

The facility had been without power since early Tuesday morning, according to MPD Public Information Officer Roger Gibson.

Because side roads were covered with snow, police and fire personnel used Humvees to transport the residents to the highway, where vehicles were waiting to take them to the BYS main facility.

More information to follow.
