Three separate fires in six days engulfed two establishments and one house on Saipan.
Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services spokesman Derek Gersonde said yesterday that no one was injured or treated at the scenes for medical complaints in all those incidents.
Gersonde said the Arson Investigation Unit is still investigating the cause of the fires.
He said the first one happened at Hawaiian Rock on Wednesday.
He said DFEMS received a call about the fire at 5:46pm and fire trucks from Susupe, Koblerville, and Kagman responded to the scene. A water tanker from the Commonwealth Ports Authority’s Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting assisted in providing water to the fire engines.
Gersonde said the fire originated from a container used for melting tar.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze in the container.
The second fire occurred Saturday at a one-story house in San Antonio.
Gersonde said DFEMS received the call about the fire Saturday at 9:26pm and fire trucks from Susupe, Koblerville, and Kagman responded and controlled the blaze at 12:20am, Sunday.
Gersonde said investigators determined that the fire started at the southeastern side of the house.
The third fire happened in western Garapan on Sunday.
DFEMS received the call about the fire at the Hanamitsu Wedding Studio at the Paseo de Marianas on Sunday at 12:03am.
Fire trucks from Susupe, Koblerville, Garapan, and Kagman responded and controlled the blaze at 12:20am.
Gersonde said investigators determined that the fire originated from the stairway located on the western side of Hanamitsu.
