JSSPN Fire calls

The Jamestown Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from a circuit breaker box in a garage around 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, said Lt. Sheldon Mohr of the Fire Department.

Three trucks with 20 firefighters responded to the call at 619 5th St. NE. There was no smoke when they arrived and no fire in the garage that was attached to the home, Mohr said. Firefighters used a thermal imager to ensure there was no fire in the walls of the garage, he said.

The residents were advised to contact an electrician to check the breaker box.

No injuries were reported and there was no damage. Firefighters were at the location for about 15 minutes, Mohr said.

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.
