Fire damages home near Hoffman
Morris Minnesota 607 Pacific Avenue 56267

A house fire near Hoffman early this morning caused damage.

Ritchie LaVern Johnson called 911 shortly after 1 a.m. to report that his house at 3011 Island Road SW in Urness Township was on fire.

Flames from a wood-burning stove inside the home caused the fire. Johnson was able to douse the flames before the Hoffman Fire Department arrived on scene.

Firefighters removed a portion of the wall and roof to completely extinguish any hot spots, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

The Kensington Fire Department was also called for mutual aid.
