The Greensburg Fire Department responded to a call of a structure fire on North Broadway Street Friday morning. GFD Chief Scott Chasteen said there were large amounts of smoke, but no flames. The problem was caused by an ashtray being emptied into a trash can, making the contents smolder and produce smoke. The close call prompted a discussion of winter fire and heat safety tips with the fire chief.
