MAYVILLE, N.D.-Mayville Fire and Rescue responded to two house fires in the past two days.

Fire Chief Lee Brenna said the Fire Department received a call at 7:51 a.m.Thursday about a house fire at 38 Westwood Drive.

The fire began in a garbage can in the garage before it "went up the wall and burned through the roof," Brenna said.

Fire departments from Portland, Hatton, and Hillsboro assisted with putting out the fire, Brenna said.

"We had to spray a lot of water on this," he said. "We had four fire departments on this, shooting water from every angle."

The house was "a total loss," Brenna said.

The retired couple who lived there were in the home at the time of the fire, but no one was injured, he said.

Another house fire that occurred at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Main Street East and Sixth Avenue resulted from a dehumidifier malfunction in the second floor laundry room, Brenna said.

The fire was contained mostly to that room, he said, though it did reach parts of the attic and hallway and caused fire damage.

However, most of the damage came from heavy smoke and water damage, Brenna said.

"We caught it on time and got it knocked down," he said.

No injuries were reported. The family was displaced.
