The fire was at a one-story duplex at 1103 Pickard St. When firefighters entered the building, they encountered heavy smoke and fire in one apartment. The resident of the apartment was not home at the time of the fire, and one resident of the other apartment had evacuated when the Fire Department arrived. Two people were displaced by the fire; no one was injured.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire in one hour but were at the scene for three hours.

Fire officials estimated there was $26,000 in damage. They are still investigating the cause of the fire.
