Green Bay Fire Crews Respond to Three Saturday Fires

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Green Bay Metro Fire crews responded to multiple fires in the city Saturday. 

At around 10:45 a.m., a home on Bay Harbor Drive caught on fire after the homeowner placed hot coals in a container. Heat from the coals eventually spread to the siding of the house, resulting in flames on both the house and the garage. The homeowner extinguished most of the fire with an extinguisher before the Green Bay Metro Fire Department took care of the rest.

Meanwhile, a single family home on 12th Avenue caught on fire at around 12:30 p.m. Before fire crews arrived, the homeowner and children were able to evacuate. Authorities say the fire was caused by children playing with matches or a lighter. The damage is estimated at $28,000.

Finally, crews responded to a fire alarm at Woodland Park Apartments at University Avenue at 1:30 p.m. Firefighters quickly found that the source of the smoke was coming from an oven, which was set on self-cleaning mode. Crews unplugged the oven and cleared the apartment complex with fans before allowing the residents back inside.
