Car windows damaged on California Road

Wednesday, April 18

• Police dispatched units of the Orchard Park Fire Company to an apartment building on Angle Road for a report of smoke from a first-floor apartment. By the time fire units and police had arrived, the resident had gone into his apartment and extinguished a fire on his stovetop. He had turned on a burner instead of the oven as he intended. He then left the apartment to go sit in one of the building’s common areas. A female neighbor smelled the smoke. She determined that it was coming from her neighbor’s apartment and went and alerted him and called 911. Because of her quick actions, it was a minor affair with no damage. The police complimented the woman for her actions.
