Fire forces guests from Hyannis hotel
HYANNIS - Scary moments when guests at a Hyannis hotel are ushered from their rooms after a fire is discovered. Firefighters responding to an alarm at the Four Points Sheraton on Scudder Avenue about 12:15 discovered the fire in the laundry area of the hotel. Thick smoke shrouded part of the hotel and seeped into some of the rooms which firefighters had to ventilate. Guests were relocated to the safety of the hotel's ballroom. Mutual aid from several surrounding towns was called to the scene or to cover the Hyannis station. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal's Office. Posted on 10/09 at 12:45 AM; updated on 10/09 at 1:45 AM. Photo courtesy of Ryan Somerfield.

Three arrested in gun charges
HYANNIS - Three local men were charged with firearm offenses early Sunday morning and for one its not the first brush with the law. According to the Times police were called to Pufferbellies by security who thought some people were smoking marijuana in a car in the parking lot shortly after one of them had been ejected from the club for allegedly causing a disturbance. 19-year old Randall Newell III of Centerville, 19-year old Kyle Fortes of Buzzards Bay, and 18-year old Courtney Lee of Marstons Mills were all arrested on weapon charges and a .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun was recovered. Fortes was also charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Newell you may recall was involved in an incident on May 31st on Pine Street in Centerville where shots were fired in the air. No one was injured in that incident but no gun was recovered. The Times also reports Barnstable Police were working with Yarmouth Police investigating a report there was a gun at a Yarmouth residence where Newell is residing. Newell is reportedly cooperating with authorities and admitted ownership of the gun in this latest incident. Posted on 10/09 at 12:00 PM.
Serious injuries reported in head-on crash in Brewster
BREWSTER - Three people were injured, two seriously in a head-on crash in Brewster late Sunday afternoon. Crews were on the scene of the crash at Stony Brook Road and Route 6A (Main Street). It appears a Chevrolet Camaro may have been trying to turn onto Stony Brook Road from Route 6A when it collided head-on with a Dodge Dakota pickup truck. Firefighters had to extricate some of the victims from the two vehicles. Both drivers and a passenger in the pickup were hurt but the injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. Both roads were closed in the area until the wreckage was cleared. The crash happened at the intersection where the two roads meet at a oblique angle as Route 6A rounds a sharp bend and is guarded by a blinking light. The crash is under investigation by Brewster Police. Posted on 10/08 at 5:15 PM; updated on 10/08 at 10:00 PM. Photo courtesy BWS.
