Police and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical crews responded to a reported structure fire in the 2400 block of Alabama Street about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. The fire was extinguished within minutes and no injuries were reported, according to Journal-World news partner Operation 100. Police established a perimeter at the location and took a report. Detailed information about what was on fire, the cause or whether officials view it as suspicious was not available Sunday.
The address where the fire was reported is less than a quarter-mile from an area where police investigated several suspicious fires in occupied apartment buildings between Oct. 19 and Nov. 11.
