No One Injured in Kasson Apartment Fire
Kasson, MN (KROC-AM News) - Firefighters in Kasson responded to an apartment fire this afternoon.
A spokesman for the Kasson Police Department says the fire was reported shortly after 4 PM in the 200 block of West Main Street in Kasson next to Dibble Funeral Home. The first officers to arrive at the scene spotted smoke coming from the 2nd floor of the building. After encountering thick smoke in the doorway to the affected residence, the officers evacuated until fire crews arrived.
It was then discovered a grease fire had started in a pan after a burner on the stove was left on. The resident indicated he left to pick up his children at their school bus stop and returned to find fire trucks parked outside his home.
