Staff Reports

Two separate fires in the Chapel Hill area caused minimal damage and no injuries.

The first fire occurred Saturday, Jan. 27, at approximately 10:37a.m. The residence of Lethia Crutcher at 412 Maple St. in Chapel Hill caught fire when Crutcher left the stove on while visiting nearby family.

The kitchen suffered from fire damage and the rest of the trailer had smoke damage.

Monday, Jan. 29, at approximately 11:50a.m., Chapel Hill Rural Fire Department, Farmington Richcreek Volunteer Fire Department, and Chapel Hill Fire Department responded to a fire at 2310 Mt. Lebanon Rd.

Neighbor Kyle Kujawski and his friend Alex Smith were driving by the home of Gladys Calderaro and noticed smoke coming from the home. The young men alerted the fire department and knocked on doors to alert possible occupants. Calderaro was out of state at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time. A corner of the home and a bedroom have fire damage but the smoke damage was pretty contained to that same room reported Assistant Fire Chief Robert Hale of the Farmington Fire Department.
