KANARANZI - A fire destroyed a house north of Ellsworth and west of Kanaranzi late Tuesday night.

Nobody was hurt in the fire. Owners Paul and Emily Evers and their daughter, Allysa, were unharmed. The house, located on 61st Street, was deemed a total loss.

Fire departments from Ellsworth, Luverne and Adrian were on the scene to extinguish the flames.

Ellsworth Fire Chief Kim Chapa said the cause of the fire is not yet known. As the fire department was notified of the emergency when the house’s smoke alarms went off, he encouraged all residents to have working smoke alarms.

“A good reminder to everybody is check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors,” he said. “I know it’s old-fashioned, but it’s one of those things you can’t stress enough to get them checked, because they do wear out and batteries go dead.”
