Crescent City fire personnel handle more than the flames

CRESCENT CITY - The Crescent City Volunteer Fire Department is investigating a structure fire. It was reported just after 10 last night on the 1800 block of Union Street.

The residence was a total loss and took fire fighters an hour to put out the flames.

Not only did personnel have to deal with the blaze, but a homeless man outside the residence who was armed with a knife.

He was arrested on a misdemeanor for obstruction, but has since been released with a date to appear in court. The cause is ongoing and no one was injured.
