Authorities Investigate House Fire In Eastern Sioux Falls

Authorities Investigate House Fire In Eastern Sioux Falls

Authorities are investigating a house fire in eastern Sioux Falls.

The fire happened on Harrington Circle near the intersection of 17th Street and Cleveland Avenue shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday.

When fire crews arrived, they saw smoke and flames coming out of the home. But, officials say they contained the fire within 20 minutes. At one point, fire crews had to leave the home while fighting the fire because of safety issues.

"About 15 minutes into the fire attack, we pulled crews out because of floor damage and safety issues to our crews and we fought the fire from the exterior," Sioux Falls Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Travis Thom said.

Thom says no one was home at the time of the fire.

"There were beds in there, but the beds weren't made or anything. We're under the assumption that it was under a remodel project at this time," Thom said.

Crime lab crews are now on scene trying to figure out what happened.

"We turned all the investigations over to our investigations bureau. They will be handling that with Sioux Falls Police Department, as with every fire," Thom said.

No one was hurt, but nearby homes did have to be evacuated.
