The occupants had evacuated the residence after they observed smoke coming from the attic space, as well as fire beginning to burn through the ceiling in a bathroom.

Damage is estimated at 10-thousand dollars. The residence is owned by Guillermo and Tracy Manriquez of Storm Lake.
The fire department was on scene for approximately an hour and a half, and was assisted at the scene by the Storm Lake Police Department.
