December 10th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up
At 1:24 a.m., Lawrence Police and Fire crews were called to 1407 W. 7th Street, Hawks Pointe Apartment Homes. One caller reported "sees smoke and flames from a camera." That person told dispatchers that they were not able to exit the south bedroom. Police arrived and quickly confirmed that the caller had escaped the building through a window. Officers also confirmed there was a working fire in the first floor apartment. Arriving fire crews arrived to report nothing showing from the exterior of the three story building. Further investigation led firefighters to the fire. A second alarm was ordered to respond to the scene at 1:32 a.m.. The incident was reported to be "all clear and under control" at 1:46 a.m.. Medics checked on one person at the scene. There were no reports of serious injuries and medics did not report transporting anyone away from the scene.
Police were called to an address in the 3400 block of Aldrich Street on a report of an attempted burglary. The resident told dispatchers that a subject was attempting to open windows and a door on the town home. Apparently turning on an outdoor light was enough to spook the would be burglar off. Police reported the suspect was only described as a "subject dressed in all black." No reports of damage or anything missing.
At 7 a.m., Police and Fire Medical crews were called to the intersection of E. 23rd Street and Harper Street on a report of an injury accident. Police arrived about a minute after being dispatched and minor injuries. Fire Medical crews reported two vehicles involved and three people with minor injuries.
