The Tri-Community Volunteer Fire Department responded to reports of a fire on Howardsville Rd. around 5: 45 p.m. on Wednesday.

Tri-Community VFD Assisstant Chief Danny Hague arrived at the scene, and confirmed that a small fire had started on the fourth locomotive in a tractor motor.

Officials say five engines responded to the fire, and it was controlled with two fire extinguishers.

No injuries were reported in the fire, and damages are unknown at this time. The cause of fire is under investigation.

The Tri-Community VFD also responded to another emergency call later that evening, at 8634 Tradewinds Circle around 9:00 p.m. 

After arriving on scene, officials found heavy smoke in one of the apartments.

Officials say the source of the fire was a stove, and the fire was contained in the kitchen.

Two people were treated by Hamilton County EMS for minor smoke inhalation, and two apartments suffered smoke damage, but all residents were able to return to their homes within the hour. 

The fire was ruled accidental by the Tri-Community VFD Fire Marshal's office.
