Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical were called twice Sunday night to eastern Lawrence for a report of a fire, but no problems were found.

After the first fire alarm at 8:35 p.m., firefighters found smoke in the area of 15th and Cadet, but no source of the smoke or fire.

About 20 minutes later, someone in the area called about a possible house fire, and several fire and paramedic units were sent to the area a second time.

Authorities said the smoke may have lingered from a controlled burn in the area earlier in the day.
