(Gowatertown.net – Watertown, SD) A Christmas Eve fire has destroyed a home in rural Brookings County.

The sheriff’s department says the fire was at a home on U.S. Highway 81 near 201st Street. That’s east of Badger.

Fire departments from Arlington, Aurora, Bruce, Badger, Brookings, Elkton, Estelline, Lake Preston and Sinai, along with Arlington Ambulance were dispatched just after 6:00 p.m. and found the residence consumed by flames.

After several hours of fighting the fire and encountering multiple truck problems due to the weather, the home was a complete loss.

No injuries were reported.
