Ptown fire; wind causes few problems

Firefighters quickly put out Ptown house fire
- Firefighters were able to work quickly to keep a fire from causing major damage. Crews were called to 16 Prince Street shortly before 7 PM to find smoke pouring out from underneath a sink in the kitchen. The flames were quickly doused. The occupant was temporarily placed in an ambulance to shelter him from the frigid temperatures while firefighters ventilated smoke and checked to make sure the fire hadn't spread into the wall. Officials believe a heater being used to keep pipes from freezing may have started the fire. Posted on 1/20 at 9:00 PM.

Wind causes few problems
