Incident # 11-05743 An late morning kitchen fire caused heavy damage to a Harbor Court residence, Wednesday 26-Oct. At 10:47 a structure fire was reported at 420 Harbor Court. Engine 19 arrived to find  light smoke coming from inside the building. They deployed two handlines and entered the building through the front door, finding the fire in the kitchen near the stove.
