JAMESTOWN – No injuries were reported following an early morning blaze on Jamestown’s northside.
The Jamestown Fire Department responded to 25 Wilson Place around 5:30 a.m. for a residential fire.
A resident who spoke with our crew on scene recounted the incident, explaining he woke up to flames outside of his bedroom window. The man then quickly woke up his family, and everyone evacuated the home without injury; including his dog.
Around two hours later, crews extinguished much of the flames which left behind a significant amount of damage to the single-family apartment home.
The Jamestown Department of Development tells us the property will be condemned due to fire and water damage left behind. Much of the fire damage engulfed the second-floor, with water damage impacting the first-floor level below.
As of 9 a.m., investigators remained at work to determine what started the blaze.
