It's been a busy night for Ann Arbor firefighters, who were on their way to one house fire on the north side of town when they were called to a second one on the south side.
Both fires were extinguished relatively quickly. The first fire, in the 3400 block of Burbank Drive on the city's northeast side, injured two people, said Battalion Chief Chuck Hubbard.
They were being treated at the scene, and Hubbard said it wasn't clear whether they would be taken to the hospital.
That fire started in the basement of a two-story townhouse about 6:15 p.m. The blaze was contained to the basement, Hubbard said.
Hubbard said several fire trucks were on their way to the fire when a call came in about a fire on Chelsea Circle on the city's south side.
One Ann Arbor crew then headed to the second fire, and Pittsfield Township firefighters were called in to assist. That fire started on the stove and spread into the cabinets and the wall before it was extinguished. No one was injured.
He didn't have damage estimates available yet for either fire.
