His single family residence in Wolf Lake was in flames when firefighters arrived shortly after 4:40 p.m., Anderson said.

That department called in Frazee firefighters under a mutual aid agreement.

"Between the two departments I'd estimate 15 firefighters total and five trucks" responded, Anderson said.

"The structure sustained extensive damage. The fire was contained to one portion of the house but there was smoke damage throughout."

The department called in fire marshal Kevin Mahle to assist in deter-mining the cause.

Mahle then had to head to the Velvet Antler fire in Nevis.
