The Fire Department extinguished a car fire at Buffum and Mason streets around 5:45 p.m. The blaze apparently started after a car traveling on Buffum Street collided with a car on Mason Street and then ignited, likely because the battery grounded out beneath the hood, a firefighter said. It took about 10 minutes to extinguish the fire. Traffic was tied up on Mason Street for about a half-hour, but there were no injuries and the fire was contained to the one vehicle.



Police received a 2:30 p.m. report of an erratic driver at Charles and Holten streets but were unable to locate the person.



A crossing guard reported at 3:18 p.m. that a gray SUV drove past him while he was holding up his stop sign at West Shore Drive and Turner Road.

A Pinecliff Drive woman reported at 10:50 p.m. that she had “found a shade up and things out of place” upon returning home. An officer checked the house but found nothing suspicious.
