Friday night NPFR working at structure fire in the 2700 block of Wells Ave. The fire was in a two story structure and was contained to the kitchen. The flames started as a stove fire and spread to the cabinets. There were no injuries to the occupants or Firefighters. There is heavy smoke damage to the entire structure with some water damage. A good reminder to everyone on how quickly a fire can start and how quickly it can spread. Please be safe.

About 25 local skateboarders attended Go Skateboarding Day at the North Port Skate Park on June 21. This annual event is celebrated nationally by skateboarders to highlight their sport and talent. Everyone had a great time!
UPDATE: Remember these photos from earlier this week? Well, we have some updated ones. This time it's a mug shot. With the community's help the suspect was identified as Kevin Denolf, he is currently in the Sarasota County Jail on burglary, fraud, and theft charges. That hair almost fooled us. #nicetrybuddy
A female was also arrested in this case, Jennifer Armijo, She used the stolen credit card too.
EARLIER: Earlier this month, the man in these photos stole a victim’s wallet out of his truck. He then used the victim’s debit card up and down Tamiami Trl on a little shopping spree, which finally ended at Walmart when the card was declined. When said card was denied he then stole the items anyway. Please help us identify this confused individual so he can be questioned for burglary of a vehicle, theft, fraudulent use of credit card, retail theft, and possession of personal information without authorization. #yikes.
