  • No one was injured in a pair of residential fires that occurred over the weekend in Hannibal.
    The initial fire damaged a two-story apartment house at 1120 Broadway Saturday afternoon. The second blaze, which was reported just after midnight Sunday, damaged a home at 2113 Pleasant Ave.
    According to Fire Chief Bill Madore, the cause of the fire on Pleasant has been ruled accidental, as it was electrical in nature. Madore said the cause of the Broadway blaze, which started on the front side of the structure, is still being called “undetermined.”
    “We’re hoping to have a determination some time this week,” said Madore, regarding the Broadway fire.
    In both instances an investigator with the State Fire Marshal’s office was called in to help determine a fire cause.
    Firefighters were called out at 12:04 a.m. Sunday. They remained on scene until 5:38 a.m.
    Eight firefighters were on duty at the time of Sunday’s fire. Another four firefighters were called in to assist.
    The home, which was occupied, reportedly suffered moderate damage.
    Saturday’s fire displaced four people, according to the Fire Department.
    The HFD was called to the fire at 2:33 p.m., and 12 firefighters were involved before the fire was extinguished. Three additional firefighters and the fire chief were called to the scene.
    The Fire Department reported when their first eight on-duty personnel arrived, the wood-frame building had flames coming from the front of the residence.
    All the residents were out of the building, which consists of three apartments, at the time the Fire Department arrived.
    The fire caused moderate to severe damage to the structure, which reportedly is owned by John Northcutt of Northcutt Properties.
    Firefighters were at the scene for almost 6.5 hours.
