December 24th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Lawrence Police started the morning off with a domestic disturbance. Four units were assigned to the call. No injuries were reported.

Officers conducted more than five vehicle stops, at least two of those stops resulted in suspected DUI arrests.

Shortly after 3 a.m., Baldwin City Fire was requested to respond as mutual aid to the city of Wellsville, in northeastern Franklin County, to assist on a structure fire in the 100 block of W 5th Street. Wellsville Fire was requesting a "ladder truck" from Baldwin City. It sounded as though the structure was heavily involved with firefighters maintaining an exterior defensive attack. Cutler Township Fire, also of Franklin County, assisted on the fire as well. No injuries were reported.

Just before 7 a.m., one Lawrence Fire unit was dispatched to investigate a fire alarm sounding at a house in the 800 block of Arizona Court. That unit arrived, reported a small fire in the garage and requested a full one alarm structure fire assignment added to the call. As those additional units began arriving on the scene, the initial fire unit was able to knock down the small fire. All other units were allowed to return to service, once the fire was confirmed to be out. No injuries were reported.

No serious injuries were reported with any of this morning's activity.
