1 home a total loss, another damaged in SE Rochester fire

(ABC 6 News) – The Rochester Fire Department said one person was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation after a fire at a mobile home Friday afternoon.

That home and one vehicle are a total loss, plus a neighboring mobile home also suffered an estimated $75,000 worth of damage.

Fire crews were called to the 1600 block of Marion Road SE around 4:30 p.m. for a report of fire, when they arrived they saw heavy black smoke coming from roughly 85% of the home, and witnesses told crews a woman was trapped inside.

Crews were able to suppress a large amount of the fire within 4-5 minutes, but did not find a person inside. Shortly after fire crews discovered all occupants had made it out of the house, and a woman was taken by ambulance to Mayo Clinic Hospital Saint Marys Campus.

The Red Cross was called in to provide assistance to the neighboring home that also suffered fire damage.

The Rochester Fire Department’s Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the incident.
