Redwood Falls Apartment Fire 25 Jan 13

A Redwood Falls apartment complex was evacuated Thursday evening after a fire broke out. Fire crews were called out to Lakeside Manor on Minnesota Street in Redwood Falls at just before 7pm Thursday, and when they arrived residents were being assisted out of the building. Some of those residents were taken to the Redwood Area Hospital for evaluation, and the Brown-West Nicollet and Redwood-Renville Red Cross Chapters had volunteers on the scene to provide assistance. The apartments took damage from the smoke and fire, and it may be sometime before the residents can return home. The building contains 56 Apartments. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
