House Fire

(Le Mars) -- A two-story, multi-unit apartment house in Le Mars caught on fire Friday morning at about 9:25 a.m.  Both the Le Mars and Merrill Fire Departments were dispatched to 18 4th Street SE.  Le Mars Fire Chief Dave Schipper says upon arrival, fire officials saw heavy smoke coming from the structure, as well as flames that were visible coming from a window in the back of the building.

There were no injuries reported with the fire.  But, given the cold temperatures, Schipper was grateful for all the equipment working properly.
