Email News Alerts

Firefighters were able to save a house from being consumed by fire Thursday morning in the Toad Lake area.

Wolf Lake Fire Chief Dale Hilluka told KDLM News that when firefighters arrived, he thought the house would be lost because it was half-covered in flames.


But acting quickly, crews knocked down the fire despite the windy conditions.

Hilluka says the fire started in some straw the homeowner had placed around the house for insulation.
