Valley City Home Lost to Fire

Posted: Updated:

A Valley City woman escaped serious injury after a fire severely damaged her home Tuesday.

Fire chief Gary Retterath says flames were shooting out a window when crews arrived on the scene at 626 4th Street Southwest just before 5:00 Tuesday morning.

The woman escaped without injury, but got so close to the fire that her hair was singed by the flames.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Chief Retterath says the fire started in the bedroom and they believe a power strip near the bed may have been the cause.

The Salvation Army and the American Red Cross is helping the woman who lived in the home, which is a total loss.
