No human lives were lost but some animals did die in the latest round of fires in the Illinois Valley.

Goats were killed in a barn fire Thursday morning west of Route 71 near Wedron. Serena, Sheridan, Wallace and Marseilles firefighters all fought the barn fire for over an hour.

Serena and Sheridan firefighters were called back in action Thursday afternoon for a bathroom fire in a home outside Serena. The homeowner had dealt with the flames by time firefighters arrived.

Also in Bureau County Thursday afternoon, a corn crib was destroyed by fire on Route 34 east of LaMoille.
