UPDATE: Busy 24 hours for River Falls Fire Department
The Thursday night fire first reported as an old barn was actually an abandoned farmhouse…Nothing of value was stored in the house.
The well for the vacated house was still functional and the owners had heat tape around the pressure tank and covered it with straw to keep it from freezing.
The fire’s cause was undetermined. The structure was uninsured.
