Tuesday fires keep MFD busy
Two inner-city fires claimed a residence and a local business Tuesday evening. According to the Martin Fire Department, a report of a house fire at 112 Carter St. in Martin came in around 6:15 p.m. on Tuesday. A grease fire is the suspected cause of the fire at the home of Dorothy Walters. The department was on the scene for almost three hours battling the blaze and later conducting an investigation into the incident. No one was injured, although MFD personnel said Walters suffered form slight smoke inhalation.
The residence has been deemed unsalvageable. Sharon Fire Department provided mutual aid.
As MFD and SFD firefighters battled the blaze on Carter Street, another call came in that evening stating a small business on Elm Street was also on fire.
Officers responded and found S and S Outdoor, located beside E and C Garage on Elm Street, on fire. The department was on the scene at the small Martin business for approximately two and a half hours. The incident is still under investigation and no cause or point of origin has been determined.
The Union City, Sharon and South Fulton fire departments provided mutual aid with manpower during the fire. No injuries were reported. The small business was reportedly destroyed by Tuesday night’s blaze.
