In Local, Police Blotter

At approximately 12:30 am firefighters responded to the rubbish fire on John Street.

When fire crews arrived they found a large pile of garbage beside the house that had been partially extinguished by tenants.

Firefighters spent the next hour sifting through the garbage making sure it was extinguished.
