FAIRBANKS — North Star volunteer firefighters responded to a stovepipe attic fire and an ATV fire in a garage Saturday morning in the North Pole area.

Both fires were contained to the area where they began, thanks to early detection and reporting, according to the North Star Volunteer Fire Department.

The first fire was reported at 6:40 a.m. at 2875 Garnet Drive. The fire was confined to the vehicle, which was worth an estimated $12,000.

The second fire was reported at 12:15 p.m. at 2481 Aster Drive off Marigold Road.

The owner was able to keep the fire confined using a pair of chemical fire extinguishers. Firefighters arrived and put out a fire in the roof area.

North Pole and Fort Wainwright fire departments provided mutual aid at both fires. The North Star department has responded to five fires in the past 11 days.
