July 17th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Most of this morning was fairly quiet in Lawrence. Officers responded on a fireworks complaint in the 900 block of Rhode Island Street at 2:15 a.m.. Police also received information on a drug complaint and responded on one disturbance reported to involve weapons. No arrests or serious injuries were reported.

Just outside of Douglas County, Tonganoxie firefighters battled a fully involved residential fire just after 5:30 a.m.. Police reported the rear of the home was fully involved with fire. Firefighters from Tonganoxie and several surrounding Township Fire Departments were able to report the fire to be under control as of about 6:15 a.m.. Both residents of the home escaped without injury. More on this fire can be found here from Operation 100 News or from our partners at the Lawrence Journal-World.

Back in Douglas County, Lawrence Fire/Medical are currently (as of 8:10 a.m.) on scene at McCollum Laboratories, 2095 Constant Avenue, on what began as a fire alarm. One fire crew responded and reported light smoke inside the one-story building. A full alarm assignment was added to the call shortly before 8 a.m.. Crews inside the building believe the smoke to be coming from a HVAC related issue. There has not been any confirmation of a working fire at this time. A Haz-Mat crew is also standing by at the scene as a precaution. KUPD has blocked several streets in the area, which are blocked by LDCFM vehicles and apparatus. It did not sound like anyone was inside the building at the time of the initial fire alarm.

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