On June 4 at approximately 11:17 a.m. the owner of a rental property located at 615 East Second Street in Redwood Falls reported the residence was on fire and believed four juveniles were trapped on the second floor.
Redwood Falls Police Department officers and Redwood County Sheriff’s Department deputies made entry into the residence and found a fire in the kitchen and the house full of smoke.
The search of the residence was ongoing until the Redwood Falls Fire Department arrived on scene and was able to confirm no one was inside the residence.
Once the fire was extinguished the owner of the property learned the four juveniles were at another location and had not been inside at any time during the fire.
One deputy received minor cuts during the search of the residence and went to the Carris Hospital-Redwood for treatment.
North Ambulance assisted at the scene.
