There were no injuries after a house fire on the first block of Marshall Park Drive  

Fire crews responded at 7 pm Tuesday and, upon arrival, were told by the homeowner that nobody was inside.  

A fire in a basement storage room was extinguished with significant smoke damage to the home — which can’t be lived in for some time.  

Greg Saunders, Deputy Fire Chief, says the home did not have working smoke alarms at the time of the fire.

“The owner of the home is being charged with two counts of failing to have the required alarms,” he states in a release.  “Each charge carries with it a $360 fine.”

Saunders is reminding residents that working smoke and CO alarms are required by law.  

“Properly located, properly maintained alarms will save your life,” Saunders says. 

City fire prevention is investigating the cause of the fire.
