QUESTION No. 1: Two readers asked about police activity about 7:45 a.m. today near South M Street between 40th and 42nd. Both reported seeing several police cars at the scene.

ANSWER: Officers responded to a shots fired call at a house. Occupants of the house claimed someone had shot at the house, Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum reports. The occupants then armed themselves and were not cooperative with law enforcement officers.

QUESTION No. 2: Another reader asked about what the issue was about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday when there were about 5 or 6 fire engines off of 104th street.

ANSWER: According to Central Pierce Fire & Rescue, there was a report of a possible electrical fire at a house near the intersection of 107th and 86th Avenue East. Firefighters found no smoke or fire damage but did smell an electrical-type odor. They shut off the power until the owner could fix the issue. Red Cross volunteers were called to help the tenants.
