House fire on 15th Avenue

The Princeton Fire Department was called to a structure fire on a deck at 309 15th Ave. S. at 7:55 p.m. on Saturday, April 7. When firefighters arrived, the homeowner was fighting the fire with a garden hose, Princeton Fire Chief Jim Roxbury said. The fire appears to have started when embers from an outdoor ashtray started a fire on the deck, Roxbury said. The fire burned an outside wall, siding and a soffit. The fire extended into the attic.
