Inclement weather hindered fire fighters efforts to put out a garage and house fire in Wright County early Saturday morning.
At 04:16 AM Saturday, the Wright County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a structure fire at 10221 Peyton Ave SW in Stockholm Township. Initial investigation found the fire started in an attached garage and spread into the home. Owners, Brent & Jenna Kantola and their 5 children were able to exit the residence uninjured.
Cokato Fire Department responded to the scene and the house and garage were a total loss.
Officials say fire suppression efforts were significantly affected by poor weather and road conditions.
The Red Cross was contacted and is assisting the family.
The cause remains under investigation.
