FRAZEE -- A trailer home in rural Frazee was destroyed by a fire Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 22.

Firefighters and emergency response crews from Detroit Lakes and Frazee were called to the fire at 16269 330th Ave. at about 5 p.m.

Detroit Lakes Fire Chief Scott Flynn said crews arrived at the scene of the rural Frazee property to find a trailer home on fire, with smoke and flames visible through the roof. One resident and a dog were on the property outside the home; no one was inside.

Flynn said the fire spread rapidly throughout the home due to Tuesday's high winds, but firefighters were able to keep it from spreading anywhere else. A garage, propane tank and parked vehicles were all nearby.

Crews remained on scene until about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Flynn said. The home was a total loss.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation Wednesday, but Flynn said it was "probably accidental" and did not appear to be suspicious.

The Red Cross made contact with the home's two displaced residents, and is assisting them as needed.

The Detroit Lakes Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the Frazee Fire Department, Frazee Rescue and St. Mary's EMS.
