The first one happened in the 1400 block of 7th avenue around 3 a.m. When firefighters got to the home, they found flames coming out of the front of the house. Once the flames were out, the house was determined to be vacant.

Later around 6:30 a.m., firefighters were on the scene of another house fire. This time in the 3100 block of 8th street. The fire department has condemned that house and considers it a total loss.
