This story was updated on Friday morning.

April 14 – Centennial Fire crews made a quick knock down at a dwelling fire located in Centerville Thursday afternoon.

The initial call, at 11:56 a.m., came from a neighbor who reported smoke coming from the back of a home in the 1900 block of Robin Lane S.

When firefighters arrived at the one-story modular home, they had heavy fire showing from a crawl space and a hole in the back of the home, Chief Jerry Streich told Twin Cities Fire Wire.

There are no hydrants in the area, so tankers were requested to the scene.

Crews deployed handlines and quickly extinguished the fire.

Streich said crews performed extensive overhaul of the structure and snuffed several spot fires in the attic and underside of the structure.

The home was unoccupied and undergoing renovations for a new owner.

Streich said the fire was accidental. He said “a high wattage halogen lamp left in the ‘on’ position was the likely cause of this fire. ”

Mutual aid was received from  Forest Lake, Hugo, and Lexington fire crews.
