Case Details:

On July 12, 2020 at about 7AM the Douglas County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call from 1027 Trisco Cove Ct SE, reporting smoke in the home. All residents were able to safely evacuate the home and were uninjured. The Osakis Fire Department responded, finding smoke and a small fire coming from the crawlspace under the home. OFD was able to extinguish the fire with little to no structural damage to the house, other than minor smoke damage. OFD attempted to find the cause of the fire, and their preliminary investigation suggests it was caused by a lightning strike. Assisting at the scene were the Osakis Fire Department, Douglas County Sheriff's Office, and the American Red Cross.
