Structure Fire - 1000 Block of Plum
At approximately 12:38 a.m. the Abilene Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 1000 block of Plum St. The small, cinder block apartment was fully involved upon arrival. Due to the close proximity of the neighboring home and a small shed that was involved, a second alarm was called. There was one occupant at home at the time of the fire. He stated that there was a heater near a curtain that had been left on, and he awoke to find the curtain on fire. The structure, along with the shed suffered heavy damage and are a total loss. Four vehicles parked behind the structure also received fire and heat damage. After an investigation, the fire has been ruled accidental. Damages are estimated at $20,000.
