September 25th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Another very calm morning for Police and Fire Medical in Douglas County.

Lawrence Police were called out on one disturbance this morning, just after 2 a.m.. That disturbance was reported to be domestic related. No injuries or arrests were reported.

Officers also conducted several vehicle stops, again no arrests were reported.

At 4:58, Police were dispatched to the 200 block of McDonald Drive on a report of suspicious activity or possible auto burglaries. A caller reported a subject wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans trying to get into a vehicle. No arrests were reported.

At 6:53, Police and Fire Medical were called to the 2800 block of Iowa Street for a possible structure fire. A caller reported a fire in the area of the Laird Noller Hyundai. Police initially dispatched it as a car fire near a building and Fire Medical was dispatched on a possible structure fire. After further questioning by dispatchers, the caller said it was a "pit fire" near the northeast corner of the Laird Noller building. Police arrived to find a subject nearby starting a barbecue grill. Firefighters also checked the area and were unable to locate anything other than the grill. Fire Medical made contact with the people near the grill, who reported having no problems. All units were clear of the call, with nothing found, by 7:05.

None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.
