A fire damaged a boat, a trailer and at least one home in the 300 block of North Fourth Street about noon Thursday.
Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical crews responded and the flames were extinguished by 12:30 p.m. The fire badly damaged a boat and a small shed in the rear of one home, and caused minor damage to a nearby house. Two other houses were marked by radiant heat but otherwise appeared undamaged, said Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical Chief Mark Bradford.
No injuries were reported, Bradford said, and it did not appear anyone would be displaced by the fire.
