WATERTOWN, S.D.–Watertown Fire Rescue was called out to a deck fire Monday night.

The fire at 718 Third Avenue Southwest was reported at 10:44 p.m.

Fire crews arrived to find most of the fire had already been extinguished.

The home had some minor fire damage.

The deck was removed from the home and set aside.

Crews were on the scene for about an hour, but were called back to that address just after 5 o’clock this morning when the fire rekindled.

Fire crews were also called out to Hubbard Milling just before 2:30 this morning, but that call turned out to be a false alarm.
