* Quick action by employees of Frank’s Heating and Refrigeration saved a residence on 260 National Boulevard in Crescent City Tuesday morning. According to Chief Bill Gillespie of Crescent City Fire and Rescue, light smoke was coming from a bedroom window across the street from the business’s shop. With the fire department called, Frank’s crew used a garden hose to extinguish the fire before it got roaring. When firefighters were arrived, the fire was out. A short in an electrical power strip was blamed for starting the short-lived blaze.
