The Jamestown Fire Department vented smoke from a residence early Thursday, Aug. 4, said Lt. Sheldon Mohr.

The department was dispatched at 5:28 a.m. to 417 12th St. NE. Mohr said the call was reported as a power strip being on fire. He said the fire was extinguished before firefighters arrived.

Four trucks and 20 firefighters were at the residence for 25 minutes, Mohr said.

“We just vented smoke,” he said.

No damage was reported and there were no injuries, he 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.
