2 fires break out within minutes of each other in Geneva


Geneva Fire Department crews responded to two house fires Friday night that broke out within just a few minutes -- and blocks -- from each other, authorities said.

The fires occurred around 7:30 p.m. on the 900 block of Sunset Road and the 1500 block of Keim Circle, just as severe thunderstorms were passing through the area, according to Geneva Fire Department officials.

It was unclear whether any of the fires were triggered by lighting strikes.

Authorities said they would provide additional information Saturday.
