The State Fire Marshal’s office has been called in to investigate two separate fires on National Road early Tuesday morning.

Falls Township Fire Chief J.D. Johnson says around 4:30 his department responded to the scene of a fire at a trailer home at 5971 National Road. No one was home at the time.

Johnson says firefighters managed to quickly put out the fire which did minimal damage to the home.

He says while on the scene of that fire they received a call of another fire just down the road at a home at 6130 National Road.

He says that fire did extensive damage to the roof and interior of the home.

He says it will likely be a total loss.

Johnson says they are trying to determine if the two fires are connected.
