Small fire on Harvey Ave.
Feb 22, 2013 / 10:48 am
A small blaze had to be extinguished around 9:30 a.m. this morning alongside Harvey Ave., just east of Richter St.
Officers on scene say a pedestrian walking on the north sidewalk of Harvey noticed the fire and called police.
They believe it started in a clump of pinecones and dry needles alongside a cement wall, possibly by a discarded cigarette.
A transient’s possessions were also discovered nearby, leading police to infer someone may have been trying to start a fire when it got out of hand.
The fire was quickly put out and there was no damage to the apartment building that bordered the street.
