A structure fire was reported at 1:42 a.m. Saturday on South 10th Street, the occupants put the fire out with an extinguisher before firefighters arrived. A second call regarding a structure fire came at 8:59 a.m. Sunday on Greenwood Street but turned out to be a stoked wood-burning stove.

At 5:17 p.m. Sunday, firefighters were called to a Foley Road residence with a family that was sick and a carbon monoxide detector alarm going off. North Ambulance was called but dangerously elevated carbon monoxide levels were not believed to be at the home.
