The Petaluma Fire Department received 39 medical and 60 fire or other emergency calls from May 13 through May 19. Here are some of the calls.
Tuesday, May 14
7:11 p.m. — Firefighters rushed to 1372 N. McDowell Blvd. to fight a structure fire. They found smoke coming from the packaging and processing facility for Lydia’s Organics. Apparently smoke was coming from a laundry area which also housed a hot water heater. No flames were seen. Firefighters determined the cause of the smoke to be a box of oily rags that had been washed and stored in a plastic bin. The rags may have been put in the bin while still hot, causing the fire.
