BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Battle Creek firefighters responded to two more fires early Tuesday morning at the home where a couple was killed.

The first happened about 2:40 a.m., when the Battle Creek Fire Department was dispatched to 203 Post Ave., according to a news release.

Firefighters arrived to find working fire conditions on the exterior.

A hoseline was extended for fire attack and the fire was brought under control within minutes.

About 15 minutes after clearing the first fire, the fire department was dispatched to a second exterior fire in a different part of the building.
