Electrical Fire On Wright Street

An electrical fire at 11 1/2 Wright Street last night. When fire crews arrived on the scene, the first floor of the building was filled with smoke. Platoon Chief Joe Armstrong says all of the residents were evacuated, but were let back in after the building was ventilated.
