Rural Hawley House a Total Loss in Fire

Posted: Updated:


Two adults and one child are without a home tonight after a fire destroyed their home in rural Hawley. The Red Cross is assisting the family with money for clothing and food, but they are currently staying with neighbors.

The house appears to be a total loss. Four dogs survived the blaze, but the Red Cross says three more pets are missing and are presumed lost in the fire.

The family has also been provided with handmade quilts from local churches and the child has been given two Mickey Mouse dolls from Disney Company.

The State Fire Marshal is expected to be on scene on Thursday.


A rural Hawley home appears to be a total loss after a fire Wednesday afternoon. Fire fighters from Hawley, Hitterdal and Ulen are responding to the house on 43rd Avenue North.

The call came in around 1:00 p.m. Emergency responders on the scanner are reporting that the home was fully engulfed. Because of the home's location, fire crews are driving back and forth between the home and the city of Hawley to fill their tankers with water.

Plumes of smoke could be seen miles from the fire and in the city of Hawley. Valley News Team's Nicole Johnson is on scene and says the family members were not home at the time, but several dogs were on the property.

The story is still actively developing, stick with Valley News Live for updates.
