Chesterton firefighters responded to a streetlight fire on Wednesday in the
Estates of Sand Creek.
Capt. Jamie Hicks told the Chesterton Tribune Wednesday that, at 8:29 p.m.,
the CFD was dispatched to the area of Ryder Road and Carrick Lane after a
streetlight ignited. On their arrival, Hicks said, the fire was already out.
Firefighters removed the fuse and cleared the scene at 8:46 p.m.
The apparent cause of the fire, Hicks said: a bird’s nest ignited by the
heat of the lamp. “We saw the remnants of the bird’s nest on the ground.”
