September 20th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
For those looking that have not already seen the story, Police and Fire Medical were called to the Berkeley Flats apartments in the 1100 block of Mississippi Street at 10:14 p.m... The building that contains 1100 and 1104 Mississippi Street, was seriously damaged, with parts of the third floor said to be structurally compromised. A total of 14 residents were displaced and no injuries were reported. Investigators were back at the scene shortly after sunrise this morning working to determine the cause of the fire. More on this fire can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.
Once the fire was under control, things were pretty calm in the county.
Shortly before 2:30, Police conducted a vehicle stop in the 4400 block of Adam Avenue. After administering field sobriety tests, the driver was determined to be intoxicated and was arrested.
At 4:34, Eudora Police and Firefighters were dispatched to the area of E 12th Street and Tallgrass Drive for what the caller reported to be a "plume of smoke" in the area. Firefighters arrived to report only a haze in the area. After making contact with the caller, to make sure they were all looking at the same thing, all units were allowed to clear from the call with nothing found.
None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.
The activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on.
