JAMESTOWN – City fire crews have been busy the past 24 hours battling two separate house fires in the city.
Late Monday night the Jamestown Fire Department was called to a residence at 262 Falconer Street for a fire that reportedly originated on the upper story. The structure saw significant fire, water, and smoke damage, and a dog reportedly died as a result of the blaze. No people were reported injured and the cause is under investigation.
Meanwhile, fire crews were called to a fire at a vacant home at the Corner of Fifth and Lincoln Streets Monday morning just before 5 a.m. Crews arrived on the scene at 426 E. Fifth Street and spent more than three hours controlling the fire, with a ladder truck having to be brought in to attack the fire from above and make sure it didn’t spread to any nearby structures. No one is injured and the blaze remains under investigation.
