This latest fire was located in a building just north of where Tuesday's fire took place.   

Firefighters were quick to bring this second fire under control.

Four units from this fire were damaged.  Two apartments upstairs sustained fire damage and two downstairs apartments suffered smoke and water damage.

Baker says none of these apartments were occupied at the time of the fire.

Damage was estimated at $25,000.

No one was injured in Thursday's fire.
