Gloucester Police/Fire: Self-cleaning oven fills home with smoke

Police and firefighters responded to a call about a smoky Friend Street apartment Wednesday about 6:34 p.m., according to police.

A self-cleaning oven had caused the smoke, but was not on fire, according to police, who asked residents to evacuate the building as a safety precaution.

A Lexington Avenue woman reported that the left-side mirror on the outside of her vehicle had been carefully removed and stolen sometime Wednesday night when the vehicle was parked outside her residence.

There are no suspects at this time, according to police.

A Gloucester Transit Mix cement truck struck a telephone pole on High Street about 11:38 a.m. Thursday, snapping the pole in half and knocking down the wires, according to police.

Police said there were no injuries, and National Grid responded to repair wires.
