3 Fires in Arlington Over the Weekend

Three fires broke out in Arlington over the weekend.

No injuries were reported in any of the fires.

Wollaston Avenue

A large shed caught fire behind a Wollaston Avenue home in Arlington Heights at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday (the fire is pictured above).

In addition to destroying the shed, the fire damaged a neighboring fence and patio, according to police.

Arlington firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze shortly after their arrival, police said.

The resident told authorities he kept work equipment in the shed and a faulty wire may have caused the fire.

Cornell Street

A fire broke out under the front porch of a Cornell Street residence in East Arlington at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police officers were able to put out much of the blaze with fire extinguishers from their vehicles, according to police. Firefighters then did the rest, police said.

A neighbor told police that nearby residents had been smelling smoke for the past couple days but had not been able to pinpoint its origin.

Mountain Avenue

A Mountain Avenue resident called authorities Saturday night after a ceiling fan began smelling like smoke.

The fan, which had faulty wiring, was removed from the home, which did not suffer any other damage.
