EVANSTON — Volunteers with the Evanston Fire Department have had a busy week. On Monday, March 14, they were called at approximately 10 p.m. to a trailer house on fire at 2884 Yellow Creek, in South Park Village.

Cpt. Tim Overy said, “No one was at home at the time of the fire, so there were no injuries. The trailer was completely destroyed. The cause of the fire is under investigation.”

On Wednesday, March 16, firefighters were in the middle of a meeting at the fire hall when a call came in at 7:30 p.m., this time for a fire at 105 Ute Ct. in a subdivision adjacent to Uinta Meadows Elementary.

“A person driving by saw a chimney fire and called it in,” Overy said. “We were on the scene within two minutes of receiving the call and were able to contain the fire to the chimney and stove area.”

The residents were at home, and there were no injuries. Overy said they were able to get the fire completely out and cleaned up within an hour.
