January 13th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
At 2:14 a.m., Eudora Fire was called out to an address in the 1000 block of W 14th Street for a possible structure fire. The caller reported that the house was filling with smoke. Firefighters arrived on scene about two minutes after being dispatched. Those firefighters reported no smoke or flames showing from the outside but, found heavy smoke in a back bedroom. Crews were out on the scene for about an hour and 15 minutes before everything was declared to be "all clear and under control." A faulty furnace was reported to be the cause of the smoke. There were no reports of a working fire or any injuries during the incident.
Back in Lawrence, things were again pretty quiet. Officers checked on two animal complaints. The first involved a dog that the caller said had been barking for nearly three hours. The other animal complaint involved a report of a dog that was somehow "trapped" behind a car tire, no other information was available on either call.
Officers also cited a parking violation, assisted a stranded motorist, responded on a false burglary alarm and two medical emergency calls with LDCFM.
No serious injuries or the use of any weapons were reported with any of this morning's activity.
