The Winfield police and fire departments are investigating two structure fires that occurred late Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Winfield fire chief Vince Warren said they have sent samples off to be tested to help further the joint investigation.
The first fire was reported at 11:46 p.m. Sunday in the 300 block of West 16th Avenue, according to a news release. Officers and fire personnel were directed to a detached shed at a residence where heavy amounts of smoke were reported. Responders from surrounding areas were cancelled before arriving and the structure sustained minor damage.
No injuries were reported, according to the joint press release from WPD and WFD.
The second fire was reported at 1:27 a.m. Officers and fire fighters went to 600 block of East Seventh Street, about 13 blocks away from the first fire, for a structure fire.
Large amounts of smoke were reported coming from the rear of a residence. The backside of the house was smoldering when emergency services arrived and was quickly extinguished.
Minor damage was sustained to the structure with no injuries reported, according to the release, which did not state whether both fires were related.
