JAMESTOWN — The Jamestown Rural Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from a garage Thursday morning, June 30, near Jamestown, according to Brian Paulson, rural fire chief.

Two trucks and seven firefighters responded to a call at about 7:40 a.m. at 4293 4th Ave. NW, which is right outside of Jamestown.

"When we got on scene, the homeowner had put out the fire with a fire extinguisher," Paulson said. "What that turned out to be was some oily rags sealed up inside a storage bin, and those self combusted and started on fire. "

Paulson said the homeowner was alerted by a smoke detector at the residence. No damage was done to the garage.

Firefighters were on scene for about 20 minutes.

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.
