Fire Destroys New Ulm Home 01 May 12

A home in the New Ulm Mobile Village was destroyed by a fire early Monday morning.

The fire was reported just after midnight.

New Ulm Fire Chief Paul Macho says the smoke and flames kept firefighters from determining if the home was occupied at the time. Chief Macho says they did determine that no one was hurt in the fire.

Passersby on the scene reported seeing smoke before finding the home in flames and calling 911.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
