RANDOLPH — No one was home when Randolph and Fox Lake fire departments battled a house fire in Randolph on Saturday night

Randolph Fire Chief Ed Hoksbergen said the fire at 121 Tamarack St. was a single-family rental unit. The fire department was dispatched to the home at 9:45 p.m.

“It started on the first floor,” Hoksbergen said. “There was no one injured. There was no one in the house when the fire started.”

The fire spread and damaged both floors of the home. Hoksbergen said they are still investigating the cause of the fire.

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, Randolph Police and the Dodge County Emergency Response Team assisted at the scene.

Hoksbergen said they were on the scene until 2 a.m. He was not aware who the owners or renters of the home were on Sunday.

It is the second house fire that Randolph has had to battle in the last month. On Nov. 20, the home of Wayne Vanderploeg, 139 Center St., was destroyed by a fire. No one was injured in the November fire.
