(ABC 6 News) - Three people were taken to the hospital after a house fire near Waltham Sunday morning.

The Mower County Law Enforcement Center received a 911 call around 6:30 a.m. from a child reporting a fire at a house on the 59000 block of 307th St.


When deputies arrived they found smoke coming from the windows, doors and roof vents of the house.

Deputies said a man and two young boys had escaped the house.

The man told investigators that he woke up to discover smoke in his bedroom and the wall warm to the touch.

He got everyone out of the house then went back inside to collect some items and turn off the LP tank.

The three were taken by Hayfield Ambulance to Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Austin to be evaluated.

The State Fire Marshal is working to find the cause of the fire.

American Red Cross volunteers are helping out the family.
