Firefighters Respond to Garage Fire Near Previous Suspicious Fire

By Ellis Codjoe, December 15, 2017

(File Photo) Ottumwa Firefighters responded to another structure fire early Friday morning.

Crews were called to North Graves Street at 1:37 this morning on reports of a fully involved shed fire. Differing fire reports describe the structure as a shed or a garage. Two cars were also destroyed in the fire.

Crews spent more than two hours on scene extinguishing the fire and ensuring that it did not spread to a nearby home. They were called back to the scene several hours later after the fire rekindled.

Officials couldn’t comment when asked if the fire was being considered suspicious, saying that information was not included in a report filed regarding the fire.

The fire was within blocks of a Wednesday morning fire that destroyed an abandoned home on Caldwell Street. The Wednesday fire is being treated as suspicious.
