Flatbed on fire, but house not in jeopardy

by Jody Spear and Kelly Meyer –

MASON CITY – Starting around 5:20 AM Thursday morning, a call to the Mason City Fire Department reported a fire at 422 N. Georgia Avenue.  What appeared to be a camper was on fire and close to the house, garage and power lines.

Firefighters were able to put the fire out before it spread and it was said, “the house is not in jeopardy.”  No other damage was observed.

A former resident of the house said, “Nobody is living there, they’re remodeling and it’s probably the flatbed trailer.”

Shortly after that call, dispatch reported a call describing a person who couldn’t talk. The address the call came from was 922 S. President. At 7:00 am, the ambulance was still at the home. No further information is known.

Around 6:00 am, a passerby on the 200 block of 6th Place SE called in a person who was lying on the sidewalk. An ambulance and three squad cars responded to this incident. The Mason City Police officers talked to the man, released the ambulance and escorted the man down the block.
