There were lots of sirens at about 5 a.m. Monday while likely most people Hutchinson still slept, but the reason for them turned out to be rather minor.

According to Hutchinson Fire Department Fire Battalion Chief Jeremy Unruh, the “Blue Crew” – under his direction – responded to the 800 Block of North Adams for a report of a fire in a row of apartments with people still inside. Initial arriving crews reported that no fire was visible. A small fire then was found at the back of an apartment and was controlled in less than five minutes.

Unruh said there was very minimal damage to the structure and no one was injured. Damage estimates were $2,000. The cause of fire still is under investigation.

Hutchinson Fire responded with six units.
