Then, at 11:21 a.m., there was another cooking fire at an apartment on the 2100 block of Xavier St. Firefighters found smoke throughout the apartment. The fire was also contained to the oven. Crews say the person who lives had been storing cookware and ice cube trays in the oven and forgot to take them out before starting the oven. This fire was also ruled an accident.

At 2:06 on Wednesday afternoon, someone reported smoke coming from an electrical outlet at a house on the 1400 block of N. 16th St. Firefighters shut off the power at the break panel and determined the fire did not extend outside of the outlet box.
