Firefighters investigate smoke at Cape doctors' offices
Firefighters from the Cape Girardeau Fire Department investigated a smoking heating element this morning at Cape Primary Care and Immediate Convenient Care, located at the intersection of Kingshighway and Lexington Ave.
According to a spokesperson for the fire department, they were called to the scene around 8:05 a.m. in response to smoldering in the attic area.
