Authorities have not been able to determine the cause of a fatal house fire earlier this month in Willmar.
The fire, at 1210 Southeast Willmar Avenue, claimed the life of 91-year-old Frances Anderson. Anderson’s body was found inside the home when firefighters entered on the morning of September 17th.
KWLM reports Willmar Fire Chief Gary Hendrickson saying it appeared the fire began in the kitchen area and spread. The State Fire Marshal’s office has been investigating the cause but Hendrickson says the damage was so extensive, the actual cause may never be determined.
