Police & Fire: Meters on Fire

METERS ON FIRE: Both the Battle Creek Fire Department and Consumers Energy are investigating after two electric meters caught fire Friday. Firefighters were called to the first block of Oaklawn Avenue between Kendall and Howland streets for a meter on fire at 8:21 a.m. They found that Consumers workers had already been called for an electrical panel fire. Firefighters extinguished the fire and, while there, noticed the second fire at  8:43 a.m. at another home a few doors away. They also extinguished that fire in an electric meter. Consumers Energy workers were making repairs. No one was injured in either of the fires.
