2800 block of Coolidge on 4/26/2011 at 1558 hrs. We responded to an apartment fire which was charged with smoke upon our arrival. The resident had lost power earlier in the day and the stove turned on upon regaining power which contributed to the fire.
800 block of Gardner on 4/26/2011 at 2127 hrs. We had light smoke in the 2nd floor bedroom upon our arrival. It was discovered that a surge protector was glowing and smoking. We de-energized the device which solved the problem.
