The Lakeville Fire Department responded to three fires over the weekend. 

Firefighters responded to the first fire at 3:50 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, according to a press release from the fire department. The fire marshall and firefighters from Stations 1, 2, and 4 responded to the home at 20015 Hamburg Avenue.

When they arrived, they saw smoke coming from the room and chimney and upon entering the home, they found fire within the chimney walls. 

There were no injuries. Smoke damage is throughout the home, but fire damage was contained to the chimney. 

Due to the cold temperatures, Fire Station 3 and Farmington assisted. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Lakeville firefighters responded to a second fire in Elko New Market at 12:25 a.m. Sunday morning to assist with a barn fire on 25421 Natchez Avenue. Lakeville provided a fire truck and a water tender for water supply. One firefighter received a minor injury to his hand and was treated at the scene. Crews remained at the scene until 3:40 a.m.

The third fire occurred at 9874 206th Street in Lakeville. Firefighters responded to the fire at 11:10 p.m. Sunday. Police officers had arrived first and learned there was a resident inside. Firefighters removed the resident from the home, who was transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation and minor burns. 

The fire was in the laundry room and quickly extinguished, according to the release. There is smoke damage throughout the home and the residents are staying with neighbors. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
