Fire destroyed a home in Foxboro Friday, July 23.

The Town of Superior Fire Department responded to the structure fire on Polish Road at about 12:46 a.m., according to Fire Chief Darryl Fiegle. No injuries were reported.

The first units on the scene confirmed all occupants were safely out of the building. The two-story wood structure was fully involved when firefighters arrived, with fire spreading to a power pole and vehicle to the rear of the building.

The Town of Superior Fire Department responded with an engine, rescue, tanker and six personnel. An additional tanker was requested from the Parkland Fire Department. The Oakland and Summit fire departments were also dispatched under automatic aid. Mayo Clinic Ambulance, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, East Central Energy and the Town of Superior road crew also responded.

Firefighters were on scene for 5.5 hours, using 16,000 gallons of water.


“Unfortunately, the structure is a total loss with an unknown dollar estimate currently,” Fiegle said.

The family is being assisted by the Northland Chapter of the Red Cross, along with their family and friends. Although no injuries were reported, one pet was still unaccounted for.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Fiegle said.
