Firefighters battle two apartment fires

Two separate high-rise apartment fires kept firefighters busy on Tuesday.

Sarnia Fire and Rescue Services said just after 11 a.m., a stove caused a fire in a unit at 1285 Sandy Lane, while one person was at home. The fire was extinguished and the smoke was cleared from the unit.

Firefighters responded to a second fire just before 4 p.,m. in an apartment building at 810 Trillium Park after a garbage dumpster caught fire. The blaze was quickly extinguished by the sprinkler system. Fire crews removed the garbage bin from the building and ventilated the smoke.

No one was injured during either fire.

Fire officials have not released the causes or damage estimates for the fires.
