NEWPORT-City of Newport firefighters fought two house
fires within one block of each other before dawn on Wednesday, Dec. 26, the
fire department reported. No one was injured.
Firefighters said a call came in at 3:59 a.m. on a fire
at a residence at 325 White Oak Ave., located at the intersection of Holley

Upon the firefighters' arrival, a city police officer
