A benefit fund has been established for a family who lost everything in a house fire Thursday morning in Benton Township, near Cologne, Minn.
Firefighters from 11 departments were called to the 11000 block of County Road 152 at about 10 a.m., where they fought blizzard conditions in an effort to put out flames that engulfed the home.
"All the loose snow that is out here blowing across the roads is pretty dangerous," said Cologne firefighter John Hendel.
Jerry and Roxie Christenson lived at the house with their adult daughter and two granddaughters, ages 4 and 5. No one was home at the time and no injuries were reported.
The house is expected to be declared a total loss.
