Fire on Klute Street

Thursday night there was a fire in one of the apartment structures on Klute Street that sadly displaced 8 people. Luckily, no one was hurt. This would be an excellent time to check the batteries in your smoke alarms. Here’s the Fire Department’s Facebook post:

Structure Fire Involving Apartments and Vehicles – Klute Street* – Shortly before 1am this morning, 4 Engines, 1 Ladder Truck, 1 Chief Officer and 1 Fire Investigator responded to Klute Street for a report of a motorcycle burning in the parking area at 422 Klute Street. The first fire department unit arrived within 5 minutes and found three cars and a motorcycle burning in the carport of a two story 4-unit apartment building. The fire was an immediate threat to three living units above the fire and one living unit on the first floor adjacent to the carport. The fire also created a minor threat to an adjacent apartment building next door.

The four apartments of the building were occupied when the fire was reported. All occupants safely evacuated their homes prior to fire department arrival. The fire was controlled in 25 minutes. It destroyed all the vehicles and several storage areas for the residents located in the rear of the carport. It also caused moderate fire damage to one apartment above the fire and moderate smoke damage to all four units. Eight people have been temporarily displaced due to the incident. Three of the eight people displaced are receiving assistance from the American Red Cross. The five others opted to stay with friends or family.

The cause of the incident is not known at this time and is under investigation by Santa Rosa Fire Department and Santa Rosa Police Department investigators.

A 34-year-old man on probation was arrested by Santa Rosa police Friday in connection with the arson at St. Rose Catholic Church a few blocks from the man’s residence, police said Sunday.

Detectives investigating four small fires inside the newer wing of the church at 575 B Street on Thursday developed a lead Friday evening that led to a search of the man’s residence, Sgt. Marcus Sprague said in a press release.

Arson fire at St. Rose Church

Arson Fire – St. Rose Church!

Several small fires appear to have been intentionally set in the St. Rose Catholic Church in downtown Santa Rosa Thursday afternoon, authorities said. Passersby noticed smoke coming from the newer wing of the historic church at 575 B Street about 3:35 p.m. and called for help. The smoke was coming from the modern wing connected to the 116-year-old original stone façade building facing B Street, which has been closed since 1992 and awaits renovation.

Firefighters arrived and quickly extinguished three to four small fires inside the church, Santa Rosa Fire Battalion Chief Ken Sebastiani said. At least one of fires appears to have been set in some pots containing plastic flowers around the altar, which created significant smoke. Another burned around some books, he said. Officials said the carpet was also damaged.

Investigators are working with police to find the culprit, he said. There were no leads on suspects.“It could have been anybody. They don’t know who did it. They are looking for witnesses,” Sebastiani said. He estimated the damage at about $5,000.

Anyone with any information about the fires is encouraged to call the Santa Rosa Police Department at 543-3575.
