Just in case you saw/heard the big response – the fire reported in an apartment building in the 2200 block of SW Barton was a small electrical fire that was put out fast. No injuries reported. Building’s being ventilated right now.

  1. In case anyone was wondering, one of the City’s transformers blew causing the short that resulted in a small fire. Quick response by building staff, firefighters, and city technicians put the fire out right away and restored electricity to residents.
