Six units and 24 firefighters responded to 1013 14th Ave. SW at about 7:10 p.m. Mohr said when firefighters arrived, a Jamestown police officer had already used a garden hose to extinguish the fire coming from a can for cigarette butts.

Firefighters checked inside the house for any smoke, and there was none, Mohr said. He said some siding on the house was damaged.

Firefighters were on the scene for 30 minutes. No injuries were reported.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
