Fire destroyed a home in the town of Superior Tuesday, June 30. No injuries were reported.
The Town of Superior Volunteer Fire Department was called at 1:06 a.m. for a possible structure fire on South Dedham Road, according to Fire Chief Darryl Fiegle. The first crews to arrive found a single-family residence engulfed in flames with fire spreading to the detached garage a few feet away.
Firefighting efforts focused on saving the garage, which sustained heavy fire damage. Firefighters remained on the scene for roughly five hours to put out the blaze, Fiegle said. Estimated damage for the home, garage and its contents was estimated at $100,000.
The owner was not home at the time of the fire, and the cause remains under investigation.
In addition to the Town of Superior Volunteer Fire Department, fire crews from the town of Summit, Parkland and Oakland responded to the blaze, as did the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Mayo Clinic Ambulance and East Central Energy.
