First responders keep busy overnight with fires, crashes

Posted: Updated:

A local family escapes a house fire unharmed as Independence Day leads into a very busy night for local first responders.

A series of emergency calls kept Saginaw police and fire on the job late last night and into the early hours of the morning.

The most recent is a blaze in the 1400 block of Cherry.

We're told the fire started in the attic, so the smoke detectors didn't sound off.

Fire crews had to force their way into the home and wake up the family inside.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Police also investigated a three-car accident at Michigan and Cooper just after 11 p.m. We're told at least one person was hurt but we don't know the extent of their injuries.

About an hour later, police were called to a possible hit-and-run on Miller and Oakley.

We're still working to learn the victim's condition.

The fire department also worked to put out a fire just before midnight at a home in the 2500 block of South Jefferson.

We're told the house was vacant.

City officials haven't released any further details about these incidents at this time.

We'll bring any new information to you as it comes into the continuous news center.
