Avondale firefighters battle 2 fires Monday

Firefighters battled two separate fires early Monday morning in Avondale less than a mile apart, and haven’t ruled out a possible connection, officials said.

The first fire started at about 1:40 a.m. in a vacant house near Seventh and Doris streets, said Division Chief Ben Avitia, a spokesman with Avondale Fire and Medical.

Flames moved rapidly through the boarded-up house, but firefighters were able to keep them from spreading to other buildings, Avitia said.
