During the week of November 13 through 19, the St. Paul Fire Department responded to 736 emergency calls. These are a couple of the department’s emergency and non-emergency calls.

Vehicle fire - On Nov. 18 at 12:53 p.m. on the 200 block of 4th Street East, fire crews were dispatched to a report of a vehicle fire.  The car had been stolen earlier.  Upon arrival they quickly extinguished the fire to the truck.  This fire is under investigation. Damage is estimated at $3,000.

Motor vehicle accident - On Nov. 15 at 10:13 a.m. on Arlington Avenue East and Payne Avenue a 66 year old man hit a parked vehicle with his vehicle. Paramedics treated and transported him to a nearby hospital.

Carbon Monoxide - On Nov. 13 at 12:37 a.m. on the 1800 block of Orange Avenue East fire companies were dispatched after the owner called because his CO detector was sounding.  The occupant was sleeping when he heard the alarm sound.  Upon arrival fire companies took CO readings of 35ppm before ventilating the home which was caused by a faulty stove.  After ventilation, they had readings of zero.  The occupant complained of no symptoms but was still evaluated by Paramedics. The carbon monoxide alarm likely saved this man's life.
