Cold leads to fires in Pulaski

Friday’s cold temperatures led to two fires that damaged Pulaski homes.
Pulaski Fire Department Assistant Chief Jimmy Ward said 21 members of the department responded to both fires.
The first fire was reported at 10:45 a.m. at 307 Maple Street.
Ward said that fire apparently was sparked when a blanket caught fire as someone was attempting to thaw water pipes that had frozen under the house.
He said damage was minimal.

Firefighters were back in service from the Maple Street call only about half an hour when a second fire was reported at 215 Pulaski Street, a short distance from the location of the first fire.
According to Ward, the second fire stemmed from a crack in a chimney that was being used to vent a woodstove heating the house.

Due to a frozen fire hydrant the Pulaski department had to call Draper Fire Department to respond with a tanker truck to help haul water to the fire.
Ward estimated damage to the second home at $48,000.
