Last night at 1956 hrs, Cape Girardeau fire units were called to 16 N. Henderson for reported smoke coming from a house. First-arriving units were confronted with smoke throughout the street in the middle of the block. Heavy smoke was coming from the front of the building, and fire was located in a rear bedroom. Fire units went into search mode after receiving reports of possible squatters inside, but searches yielded no individuals. A working fire was called to have mutual aid companies cover the city. The fire's area of origin was the basement; it is considered suspicious and remains under investigation by the State Fire Marshal and local law enforcement. Learn More
