Early morning fire causes extensive damage to Park Rapids home
PARK RAPIDS - Ginny Christianson was on her way to work early Tuesday when she passed by her neighbor's house. She smelled a strong odor of burning wood.
Trouble was, Reenie Hensel didn't have a wood stove.
"I panicked," Ginny said. "I drove all the way to Terry's house to dial 911." Terry Collette, Ginny's co-worker, lives downtown in Park Rapids.
Reenie's home was on fire.
Within minutes fire crews were on the scene. Smoke was billowing out the roof.
The fire caused extensive damage to the home on 806 South St. in Park Rapids.
