A Hartford residence is a total loss after a structure fire Tuesday night.

According to a written release from Lyon County Sheriff’s Sergeant Zachary Shafer, at approximately 11:15 p.m. Lyon County Sheriff’s deputies and personnel from the Hartford, Olpe and Gridley fire departments responded to 2294 Road 40 in Hartford for reports of a structure fire.

“The property, owned by Christopher Miller, is believed to be a total loss,” Shafer said. “The occupants of the house were not injured during the fire.”

The cause of the fire was determined to be a kerosene lamp that was not fully extinguished.

The investigation is ongoing by the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office.
