Fire destroys vehicle along roadway

On Sunday, Oct. 27, fire crews were summoned to the area of Oxbow Avenue for a reported vehicle fire, just before 11:30 a.m.

“Crews arrived to find a crossover style vehicle with the passenger compartment fully involved,” Lewis said. “There were no immediate exposures, as the vehicle was on the roadway at the time of the fire. The fire was quickly extinguished and there were no injuries. The cause of the fire is thought to be mechanical failure.”

Structure fire

Later on Sunday, fire crews responded to the 1000 block of south Potro Drive for a reported apartment building fire at approximately 7:16 p.m.

“Crews arrived to find a one-story triplex with smoke showing from the roof,” Lewis said. “Crews investigated and found a fire in an interior wall space, that had extended up into the attic space and had spread horizontally into two units. Both units were quickly extinguished. They were also determined to be uninhabitable due to the repairs required. The cause of the fire is leaning toward accidental, with the probability the misuse of a fireplace. There were a total of three individuals displaced. No injuries were reported.”
