A house fire on Cottonwood Lake led to the complete loss of the structure on Saturday.  According to Spink County emergency manager Larry Tebben the garage of the home started on fire first and ultimately took the whole house. 


Fire crews on scene were able to save other homes close to the fire.  Four fire departments were involved in the fight including Tulare, Redfield city, Redfield rural and Wessington. 


No injuries were reported in the incident.  Scanner reports indicated ammunition stored in garage was going off due to the fire keeping crews away for a time, though that was not confirmed by authorities.
