Michael Boyk:
Around 1:20 today there was a call for a lawnmower fire in the front yard on WindSwept Way.

A FireFighter by the name of Michael Boyk from North Park Fire at the Harlem House was at home and was able to extinguish the fire after seeing smoke and smelling burnt wiring and plastic.

LPPD and LPFD also responded. Cause of the fire seemed to be a wiring issue that started under the gas tank after further review.
