Small House Fire Damages Roof, Injures No One

The St. Louis Park Fire Department was on-scene around 8 a.m. Monday.

A small fire at a house in the 3000 block of Nevada Avenue South Monday morning did some damage upstairs but left no one hurt.

The St. Louis Park Fire Department was called to the scene a little before 8 a.m. and had flames extinguished within a few minutes.

City spokesman Jamie Zwilling said damage was confined to the home's upper-level crawl space and roof. There was also some smoke and water damage on the second floor. The total damage is estimated at $75,000.

Zwilling said one resident saw smoke as he was leaving the home for the day. The resident went back inside, then called 911 himself.

Zwilling added that a family of four does live at the house, but it is unclear if anyone else was home.

Golden Valley and Edina firefighters assisted on the scene.

A cause of the fire has not been determined.

Glad no one was hurt. Does anyone know, was there also a fire of some sort in SLP on Saturday? I was walking on the Cedar Lake trail with a friend in the afternoon and we saw a big cloud of smoke, somewhat in the vicinity of the high school.
