On Tuesday night, officials were called just before 7:30 p.m. to a mobile home park in the 5100 block of North Fairmount Street. Upon arrival, bystanders were outside waving and pointing to a mobile home that had white smoke coming from it. District Chief Robbie Minnaert says the fire began in a bathroom exhaust fan. Crews safely removed a dog from the home and were able to extinguish the fire quickly. The American Red Cross was called to assist the homeowner.

Just after 7:40 p.m. crews were called to the 2100 block of West 2nd Street for reports of another structure fire.
