New Albany firemen responded about 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct 5, to a report of smoke in the historic north side of town, but could find no fire.

Someone reported to the New Albany Fire Department (NAFD) smelling smoke in a house at 513 Madison St. However, NAFD Chief Mark Whiteside said firemen searched the house thoroughly with the homeowner, but could find no fire.

There was a distinct odor of smoke in the air in the neighborhood. Firemen walked the area, but could find no fire.
Others also reported a faint scent of smoke as far east as the New Albany post office during the same early evening time.

Whiteside reminded residents that there has been little rain in recent weeks, so they should be alert to the hazard of fire.
