1 injured in Mendota house fire Saturday

Posted by wlpo on October 22, 2016

Have you ever seen a neighbor’s house burn?  Maybe even seen the neighbor taken to a hospital?  It happened in Mendota Saturday afternoon as 4 departments worked a house fire at 1201 Second Street,  a few blocks from the Mendota fire station.

Firemen arrived before 1pm and put out a fire in the living room in 15 minutes.  But, while searching the structure, a secondary blaze was found crawling its way toward the attic and that was extinguished.

The only resident of the home, an unidentified man, was taken to OSF St. Paul with unknown injuries. His condition is not known.  Mendota fireman Lonnie Isenberg told “Classic Hits 103-9 WLPO” the cause is still under investigation.  A damage estimate was not available.
