Lake Park, Iowa — Two people were injured Monday morning in a house fire just west of Lake Park.
Lake Park Fire Chief Brandon Ehret says when crews arrived, the fire was spreading from the garage into the house and nearby vehicles. He says the garage is completely gone, but firefighters did get it stopped. He says while it didn’t burn the house down, there was heavy fire and water damage to the house.
Ehret says the house is a total loss and some pets died in the fire. He says there was a little apartment building to the south of the garage that had also started on fire, but firefighters were able to get that building out. It’s pretty much a total loss.
The two people who were injured in the fire were taken to a hospital by private vehicle for treatment, then released.
