Renters out in the cold after fire in DL
A house fire at 1235 East Shore Drive in Detroit Lakes Tuesday left a local couple temporarily homeless.
Detroit Lakes Fire Chief Jeff Swanson said that the fire began in a fireplace in the home and spread from there.
One of the residents, Eric Stelzer, said that he and his girlfriend, Alexa McKenzie, started a fire in the fireplace earlier in the day.
More logs were added later, he added.
