July 26th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Around 1:40 this morning, Police were called to the 2300 block of W 26th Street after a report of two males breaking windows of vehicles and stealing items from inside. Officers arrived about a minute after being dispatched. A few seconds later officers reported two males running through the parking lot. Both men were captured and taken into custody about two minutes later. It was not immediately clear how many vehicles were broken into and/or damaged in the incident.

The rest of the morning's activity mostly centered around the passing weather. More on this morning's weather can be found here from my earlier report for the Lawrence Journal-World.

July 19th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

Shortly after 2:20 a.m., Firefighters from several township fire departments responded to an address in the 500 block of N 1200 Road for a report of a barn fire. First crews on the scene reported that the "smaller barn structure" was fully involved in flames. Tender (water tanker) units from at least two townships responded to assist with a water supply to fight the fire. No injuries were reported and no word if this morning's weather played a role in sparking the blaze.

Almost two hours later, around 4:15 a.m. as crews were beginning to clear from the Clinton township fire, emergency dispatchers received a report from a passerby of a residential structure fire in the 800 block of N 1850 Road, between Lawrence and Lecompton. Deputies arrived on scene first and reported that the rear of the house had flames showing from the both levels. Fire crews arrived, reported the same findings and began attacking the blaze. A countywide Tender (water tanker) response was ordered for a water supply. Crews began clearing from that scene around 6 a.m.. Initial reports indicated that the home was believed to be vacant. Again, no injuries were reported and no word on what may have caused the fire. More on this fire can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.
