There’s been another basement fire in the city. A fire in the basement of a duplex at 542 Cleveland Avenue quickly spread to the first two floors of the unit. Firefighters say it was knocked down in 10 minutes but it also caused smoke damage to the adjacent apartment and a house next door. Responding crews elevated the fire to a second alarm shortly after they arrived at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. There were no injuries but the fire has displaced those who lived in the duplex. Investigators have not released a damage estimate or the likely cause of the fire.
