The Trenton Fire Department reports damage was minor to the exterior of a house at 505 West 15th Street in Trenton.
Firefighters responded at 10:47 Monday morning to a house owned by Wayne King which was occupied by Isaiah Lickteig. Upon arrival, light smoke was seen on the exterior of the house and the report indicates wood from a fire pit, that was believed to be out, was stacked next to the house. The wood later rekindled burning under the siding of the house. A neighbor noticed the fire and notified the occupants.
Firefighters removed siding near the northwest corner of the house to gain access to the wood siding and sheathing to extinguish the fire. There were no injuries and firefighters were at the scene for one hour.
Assisting were Grundy County Rural Fire Protection, the Grundy County ambulance, Trenton Police Department and Grundy County Sheriff’s Department.
