It smelled like BBQ for awhile this afternoon on the 600 block of Chenery. But it had just a hint of grass fire as well, and that was enough to bring four fire engines and a chief’s van racing to make sure. They blocked traffic at Chilton and Thor and a good dozen fire fighters raced up and down the street — sniffing.
In the end, two somewhat perplexed women came out of a house in the 600 block and said they had their grill going, but there was no fire.
But there’s something comforting about the rapid response. If there had been, it would have been out like that. Not a bad thing at all.
