Remodeling to Blame for Crookston House Fire

A house in Crookston is destroyed by fire during a remodel.

Neighbors reported hearing what sounded like small explosions coming from the house at 317 Crescent Avenue around 1 a.m.

Firefighters found the garage collapsed and the fire spread throughout the home.

Firefighters had been called earlier and put out a small fire in the attic caused by a halogen light.

A State Fire Marshal’s initial investigation found the fire was an accident caused by remodeling activities.
