Structure Fire on M Street in Eureka
Original post: A fire on M Street tonight between Everding and Harris occurred a little after 11 p.m. We have a reporter on the scene and will be posting photos and more information soon.
UPDATE 1:26 A.M.:
Humboldt Bay Fire was dispatched to the scene of a structure fire on the 3100 block of M Street in Eureka at 11:06 p.m. on Saturday. Scanner traffic indicated that the fire was located in a garage.
“We arrived and saw fire around in the alley,” Humboldt Bay Fire battalion chief Kent Hulbert said. “There was fairly extensive damage to the contents [of the building].”
Hulbert said the fire is still being investigated, but he said at this point they are considering it “suspicious” in nature. This reporter heard and felt a pop come from the building at one point.
Humboldt Bay Fire was also dispatched to the scene of a reported fire on Beechwood Drive during the fire on M Street. Hulbert said, because of this there were only three engines on scene rather than the usual four engines.
“We were down an engine here,” Hulbert said.
Hulbert said the fire on Beechwood Drive “wasn’t as reported.” Hulbert said, no injuries have been reported at this time.
