Firefighters responded to the area of 3159 Wessel Ave. SE for reports of a vacant lot on fire. Witnesses reported flames approximately 15-20 feet into the trees and quickly approaching the home at the corner of Wessel Ave and Cogan.

When firefighters arrived they set up to prevent the fire from reaching the home. The boat that was next to the home sustained minor damage from its close proximity to the fire. Firefighters contained the fire to the vacant lot. The fire appears to have started at the roadside corner of the vacant lot.

There were no injuries and the cause is currently undetermined, but under investigation.
