MFD Investigating Two Overnight Fires

(Memphis) Fire investigators are trying determine the causes of two separate fires overnight.

The first fire destroyed a vacant house in the 200 block of Leath St. north of Poplar Ave. The fire started around 11:45 p.m. It was so intense that firefighters backed out of the building for safety reasons. It took them about 40 minutes to put out the flames. No one was hurt. A neighbor says this is the fourth fire at that vacant house in the past year.

The second fire started around 2:30 a.m. at the Huntington Ridge Condominiums in Northeast Memphis. The fire forced a family from their burning condo. We’re told one person suffered minor injuries. Two neighboring units were also damaged.
