The Jefferson City Fire Department responded to two separate fire calls last (Wednesday) night.
The first was reported just after 7:30pm in the 600 block of Chestnut Street.
Fire personnel arrived to find a small residential structure heavily involved in fire.
The building suffered a partial collapse shortly are the fire department arrived.
The structure is a complete loss and the cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
The building was vacant and abandoned.
Then about an hour later the Jefferson City Fire Department responded for the report of a fire in an apartment building in the 3400 block of North Ten Mile Drive around 8:30pm.
Damage was confined to the apartment where the fire started in the kitchen area.
The cause was determined to be accidental in the area of the stovetop.
About 8 to 10 residents were displaced until the restoration of fire alarm and suppression features.
The residents were assisted by the Housing Authority and a Jefferson City Fire Department Chaplain.
