Woman arrested while firefighters attempt to quell fire

BRISTOL — A Bristol woman was committed to Elkhart General Hospital for 24 hours of observation after police and firefighters were called to a fire at her apartment.

Elkhart County police reported they were called to a fire at 1:58 a.m. Saturday at 19 Maple St., Bristol.

Police reported the woman allegedly refused to leave the scene while firefighters were working, so she was arrested.

Bristol Fire Capt. Nick Lievore said the cause of the fire is still under investigation. He said the fire occurred in a closet and some clothes were damaged and there was light smoke damage in the apartment.

Police also called the Indiana Department of Children’s Services to investigate because there were children involved.
