On the morning of Sunday, November 25, at approximately 5:57 a.m., the Storm Lake Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from an apartment at 111 East 10th Street, Apartment 1.

Firefighters arriving on the scene determined the smoke was coming from some cooking going on in the apartment and the occupants had opened the door of the apartment to vent the residence. When the door was opened it activated an alarm system.

The Fire Department ventilated the apartment and determined there was no damage and no injuries.

The Fire Department was on the scene for approximately 15 minutes.

On the evening of Sunday, November 25, at approximately 10:58 p.m., the Storm Lake Fire Department responded to 1717 Tulip Lane in reference to a report of smoke and flames coming from an apartment.

Firefighters determined that some occupants of the apartment complex were cooking and opened their back door. They saw smoke rising from the building at which time they called the Fire Department. It was determined that there was no fire and what the occupants saw was the smoke which they created while they were cooking in their own apartment.

The incident was considered unfounded.

The Fire Department was on scene for approximately 30 minutes.
