FREDERICKTOWN — A furnace is believed to be the culprit behind smoke in the Fredericktown Police Department building Tuesday morning.
Fire units were dispatched to the FPD building at 182 S. Main St., at 8:36 a.m., for smoke in a hallway on the north end of the building. No fire was detected.
The north part of the building is not used by the police department.
FPD Chief Roger Brown called in the smoke after fire alarms went off. Brown said he and another officer were present in the police department, located in the south end of the building. Brown said he opened the door to the north end and saw thick smoke.
