A woman, 36, was arrested shortly before 6 p.m. Monday in the Lemon Creek area for domestic violence assault and for assault. Alcohol was involved. She was lodged at state prison.

Vehicle accidents:

About noon Monday, police responded to an accident on Industrial Boulevard. Three people were injured and transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital.

The pickup suffered $1,000 damage; the Caravan, $2,000.

Airlift:

The Coast Guard responded to Hoonah via helicopter about 9:30 p.m. Monday to airlift a woman who suffered upper respiratory distress at the Hoonah Clinic. Martha Davis, 85, arrived in Juneau about 10 p.m. and was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment. The EMT aboard the helicopter said Davis was in critical but stable condition during the flight. Davis is in stable condition today, a Bartlett spokesman said.

Vandalism:

A man, 48, reported about 8 a.m. Monday apparent vandalism to windows at the Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall with what may have been a BB gun. Damage was estimated at $3,500.

Fires:

The Coast Guard extinguished a boat's stack fire within 20 minutes of alarm on Sunday. A crew member of the 110-foot cutter Liberty spotted smoke and flames emitting from the smokestack of the fishing vessel Pillar Bay at 11:50 a.m. Sunday in Auke Bay. The cutter's rescue and assistance team (three Coast Guard members) were dispatched to the Auke Bay Harbor work float to fight the blaze. At 12:10 p.m., the blaze was out. The cause of the fire is unknown. No injuries were reported.

Capital City Fire & Rescue was called to a furnace fire about 2:45 p.m. Monday on Brady Place. A furnace repair crew was trying to light a furnace in a commercial building. There was apparently too much residual fuel in the furnace, resulting in a quick and flashy blaze but scant damage, firefighters said. Firefighters stood by for about an hour to make sure there were no other flareups.

Other:

Shortly after midnight Monday, police stopped a green Dodge pickup on Glacier Spur Road near its intersection with Counterpane Lane. The operator, a woman, 18, was cited for driving without a valid operator's license. The vehicle was left legally parked. Alcohol was involved.
