Fire Investigators Narrow Down Cause

garretson, sd

A fire that destroyed a home south of Garretson appears to have started due to an electrical issue.

Fire crews from several volunteer departments in Minnehaha County battled the fire in freezing cold temperatures Monday morning.  Fire could be seen shooting from the house and heavy smoke filled the air.

The house is a complete loss, but everyone who was inside did make it out safely. 

Authorities say they are still working to determine the exact cause.
