Wonder Lake fire displaces 3 people, kills 2 pets, fire official says

WONDER LAKE – Three people were displaced from their home and two pets were killed after a fire broke out Friday morning in Wonder Lake, a fire official said.

Wonder Lake Fire Protection District Fire Chief Skip Sorensen said crews responded about 10:45 a.m. to the 7400 block of Center Drive after a passer-by reported seeing smoke coming out of the home.

The home was in flames when crews arrived, and it took about 10 minutes to put the fire out, Sorensen said. The fire caused about $15,000 in damage, he said, and the home is uninhabitable.

Sorensen said no one was injured in the fire. He said two pets were killed, and he did not know what kind of animals the pets were.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Sorensen said.
