At around 10:30 p.m. the Riverside Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 1300 block of Arthur Avenue. When they arrived they found a garage fire that was already extinguished by the resident who used a garden hose. Although the fire was out, the structure was full of smoke and firefighters helped ventilate the residence. While at the home, firefighters also checked for extension into other areas of the home.
Upon inspection, the firefighters noticed that there were no working smoke detectors in the home. Two smoke detectors were given to residents of the home.
No injuries were reported as a result of the fire. Although there was an approximate $50,000 loss, most of the home was saved and the home remained habitable. The cause of the fire was believed to be caused by clothing lying over a flood light in the garage.
