Prescott firefighters put out a fire in a four-plex in the 100 block of South Rush Street early Friday morning that destroyed the contents of one unit and caused smoke damage to another apartment, said Prescott Fire Capt. Jeff Knotek.

At 1:25 a.m., firefighters answered a call about smoke and flames coming from the exterior of an apartment at the four-plex, and people in all four apartments were evacuated, Knotek said.

The Prescott and Central Yavapai firefighters on three engines, one truck, and two utilities knocked down the fire in less than 10 minutes, and made sure that no fire extended through the attic into the other apartments in about 20 minutes, Knotek said.

Fire crews remained on the scene until 5:30 a.m. trying to salvage what they could.

Prescott police officers helped with crowd control, and Life Line Ambulance stood by as well, although no one was injured in the fire.

Fire investigators are determining the cause of the fire that led to $200,000 in damage to the $500,000 property and about $5,000 in contents.

Perhaps you need a definition of "sponsor."

Oh really.

The flyer was donated by the Helken and Horn Agency.

Everything for the event is donated except the fees for permits.

Again, I repeat. The city doesn't "sponsor" fundraisers and it isn't sponsoring this one.

You people never give up.

1.) The CITY is NOT "sponsoring" ANY fundraiser for or otherwise.

2.) The CITY merely allowed PERMITS to be issued for a fundraiser, which they do for NUMEROUS other events. ( shows, July 4th events, etc.)

3.) The fundraiser to which you are obviously referring, has come together by the GENEROSITY of other local business OWNERS.

4.) If the folks who have been tragically displaced from their homes in this incident NEED a fundraiser, perhaps their friends and neighbors WILL step up to get them help. JUST as the Whiskey Row BUSINESS OWNERS have stepped up to help their neighbor.

The residents of these apartments should go down to City Hall and ask the City to sponsor a fundraiser for them and if they say no ask why not they will do it for the three businesses downtown.
