Georgetown, Minn. (WDAY TV) - Georgetown, Perley, and Hendrum, Minnesota all faced some tense moments during the flood of 2011. While the levees went up quickly in all three cities, the clean up in each is very different.
At 5:20 a.m. this morning, Moorhead Police and Fire Departments responded to 2913 Hanover for a report of a vehicle that was on fire in the driveway. Upon extinguishing the flames, it was determined by evidence at the scene that an accelerant was used and that the fire was intentionally started.
With Georgetown nearly finished, crews from there were moved quickly north to Perley, Minnesota where there is fear that the water could overtop the levee. One after another dump trucks dropped clay on Highway 75 in Perley. On the west side of town, clay was scooped right from the water and placed on top of the permanent levee.
