Incident # 15-01629 – A residence at 405 Lakeshore Drive suffered moderate damage from a fire in a bedroom, Wednesday afternoon 25-March at 18:38. Fire-Rescue units arrived to find smoke coming from the eaves of the single family dwelling. Firefighter-Paramedics made entry through the front door with one handline and encountered heavy smoke and heat conditions inside the structure. They made their way to the back of the home and quickly extinguished the fire in the back bedroom. The room suffered heavy damage, but most of the fire damage was contained to that room. The remainder of the home received heat and smoke damage. The owner’s adult son admitted to Sheriff’s Deputy that he intentionally set the room on fire after having an argument with another family member. He was taken into custody at the scene. No one was injured during the incident, but other family members were displaced from the home. The Red Cross is assisting them.
