Crews responded to a couple of significant incidents in Oakdale this week, including a Friday afternoon fire in an outbuilding adjacent to a home in the 100 block of North Sixth Avenue. The fire sent a plume of thick smoke skyward and briefly shut down traffic in the area surrounding the home. Earlier in the week, an early morning fire on Wednesday, July 24 damaged a home in the 900 block of Terrace Drive, displacing the residents. Look for additional information on the fires in the July 31 issue.
