SMITHVILLE – Since Saturday firefighters have responded to three fires at the same residence in Smithville.

For the third time since Saturday firemen responded to a reported fire at a Smithville residence Tuesday morning. Fire officials said it was unusual and the cause of the fires are under investigation.

Over the last few days crews have extinguished three structure fires – a garage fire, a barn fire, and a house fire, all at the same property at 993 County Road 3, in Smithville.

According to fire officials, at about 2:10 p.m. on Saturday, November 10, emergency responders responded to a small garage fire.

Responders extinguished the fire and 35 minutes later began "...an extensive overhaul," searching for any remaining flames or hot spots in the building.

However, several hours after putting out the initial garage fire on Saturday, Oxford Fire Department Chief Ron Martin said a barn fire began at same location and crews had to return.

Martin said a few days later on Tuesday morning, another fire at the same residence was reported inside the house and crews had to respond again.
