In the span of an hour, firefighters put out flames at two different locations. No injuries were reported in either incident.

Monday sure meant back to work for the .

Firefighters responded to two different fires within an hour of each other. First responders reported no injuries in either incident.

The first fire happened at 605 Second Hill Lane at about 3:30 p.m. An official on scene said the fire started outside the home near an electrical box and spread smoke to four or five rooms inside. The fire itself did not make its way into the house, he said.

The official said the fire was knocked down at about 4 p.m. It's unclear what started the fire, but one observer said it was caused by a discarded cigarette. The occupants were not in the house at the time of the fire.

Roughly 15 minutes after the fire was put out firefighters on Second Hill Lane received a call of another fire on King Street.

Firefighters arriving at 122 King St. found a detached shed fully involved with flames coming out of the rear and front openings, Capt. Michael Camperlengo said.

He said it's likely an explosion caused the fire to spread quickly within the shed, which was located at the end of a driveway and a comfortable distance from the house.

Camperlengo said firefighters were able to douse the flames within about 10 minutes of arriving. The shed is a total loss and the cause of the fire is under investigation, he added.

King Street was blocked off to motorists during the fire and following cleanup.
