(KMZA)--The Seneca Volunteer Fire Department was kept busy Tuesday, responding to two house fires.

Seneca Police Chief Jordan Weaver said the first fire was reported around 1:00 Tuesday afternoon at 606 Walnut Street.

Two people were home at the time of the fire and were able to escape the house.

They were transported to the Nemaha Valley Community Hospital in Seneca for the treatment of smoke inhalation and released.

Weaver said the house is considered a total loss.

He said the fire is suspected to have been started by a waterbed heater malfunction.

The second fire was reported around 9:20 Tuesday evening at 314 South 6th Street by a neighbor.

Weaver said no one was home at the time of the fire.

A damage estimate was not available, but the house is not considered a total loss.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
