November 25th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

A busy morning for Lawrence Firefighters.

Crews were called to the 2100 block of Heatherwood Drive at 3:21 a.m. for a reported car fire. Police arrived on the scene to report the vehicle was nearly fully engulfed. As firefighters were working to extinguish the fire, officers learned that the vehicle had been reported stolen. Police setup a perimeter in the area, in an attempt to locate the driver. There was no description available. Firefighters worked for about 15 minutes to fully extinguish the fire. Crews used CAFS (Compressed Air and Foam System) to extinguish the fire. No arrests were reported.

Firefighters were dispatched on a reported structure fire at 2345 Ridge Court at 4:01 a.m.. A caller reported that the building was filling with smoke. On arrival, Police reported visible smoke inside the building, began evacuating residents and quickly established a perimeter in the immediate area, thinking the fire was possibly another arson in the area. Firefighters quickly determined that the source of the smoke was an oven fire in one apartment. Police and Fire Investigators interviewed the resident. No injuries were reported.

Before Police could clear their perimeter on the Ridge Court call, another fire call was being dispatched. This time crews were called to the 2700 block of Harrison Place, at 4:19 a.m.. A caller reported seeing "someone lighting something on fire." Again, suspecting a possible arson, Police responded and began establishing a perimeter in the area. Two officers approached the address to investigate the fire. On approach, one of those officers reported "flames visibly reflecting off windows." Those officers located a campfire in the back yard of an address and cleared all other units from their perimeter positions. Fire crews arrived and confirmed that the fire was nothing more than a campfire.

Police also investigated the sound of fireworks in the 800 block of Michigan Street. It was an officer on patrol who reported hearing one loud pop in the nearby area. That officer did not report locating anyone with fireworks in the area.

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