Early Sunday morning, the Sacramento Police Department responded to the Comstock apartments, in the 1700 block of K Street, leading to a 3rd Alarm Structure Fire, an upper floor balcony rescue and evacuations.

"A rescue operation began to remove the male from the ledge. He was transported to a trauma facility and his condition is unknown.

The male, in his 30’s, was transported to the hospital, unconscious with a self-inflicted laceration to the neck, according to radio reports. A machete was recovered on the balcony which he was rescued from, according to radio reports.

Since You're Here

…we have a small favor to ask you. More people are viewing news from PSN than ever before. Despite our growing popularity, we are struggling to provide you coverage about what is going on in our community. Currently, PSN consists of a small, part-time team of volunteers who pay out of their own pocket to bring you news.

We have not put up a paywall because people have a right to know what’s going on in our community. We cannot survive on advertising alone because advertising rates are collapsing-threatening the existence of many local news outlets.

PSN’s unmatched coverage takes a lot of time, money, and hard work. But we do it because we want to serve our community and you deserve to know what’s really going on around you.

PSN obviously puts a lot of time and effort into bringing news, real news, to Sacramento. There’s no bias, no filter, no agenda; just events unfolding as you would see on scene. Anyone who is concerned about public safety should look to these guys first, it may not always be pleasant but it’s always reality. -Scott H.

If everyone who values our reporting helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support PSN and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
